Solved! Dell laptop won’t boot OS or get into the bios

Jan 25, 2019
My laptop won’t boot the OS or get into the BIOS config. Not sure what it might be. I tried resetting the RAM that worked but then it turned off because I accidentally unplugged the battery cable. I know I need to change the battery, but I don’t think that’s the issue here.
Then you would be getting lights, as in lights on the front or top of the device. Not talking on the screen.

So the computer is loading, but only if you go into BIOS and select the drive? Is the drive the first thing listed in BIOS?
