Guys, after updating headers, I restarted my laptop, and since then it doesn’t start is on a gray screen, well then I said: "the only way out is to make a USB flash drive and format the PC". But he doesn't enter the BIOS anymore, so you tell me: "oh, just reset the BIOS!". I tried all the ways, take the battery out of the notebook, start without the HD, change the battery on the motherboard, anyway it does not boot and does not enter the bios. Is there any way out? If anyone can help me, I really appreciate it! I'm desperate because I use the notebook to study: /

Boot from the Manjaro installation media then from there chroot into your system to try to fix the problem from there.

I can't do that, because how could I boot from an installation media if I can't get into the bios? But thanks for the help.
One of the F9-F12 keys depending on the manufacturer quick boot device select. If you press it should come up with a menu from which device you want to boot from, if you have your usb device plugged in it should also show up there.

my friend, i already tried all the keys F(1-12), and it is not entering the bios, before all this happened, it entered the bios with F2 and esc keys.

This reads like an actual hardware issue and one that can't be resolved with software. That you were using Linux and that you'd changed the kernel is purely coincidental - probably. When you boot the PC, the BIOS is independent from the OS. The BIOS opens to initialize the hardware before the OS has any impact on the hardware. The OS should, for the most part, be unable to access the hardware unless using something signed by the BIOS vendor - for something like BIOS updates.

So, in short, it reads like your computer is now a paperweight.

If the BIOS isn't loading, and completely wiping it by removing the CMOS battery didn't help, it's probably never going to work again unless you replace the motherboard. Probably...

I was just making sure, it's hard sometimes to know if the person on the other end is getting the message, that goes both ways :). If that doesn't work than like @KGIII stated there is something more wrong than the software..

G'day @SuperuserRoot and welcome to linux.org, albeit under difficult circumstances :)

I have just been watching up until now, as I have every confidence in my friends above, but I will throw in my two cents worth now. Some of the following are comments/tips, and some are questions you might be able to answer for us.

1. Question - Has this laptop had Windows on it before and if so which ... and do you have a Windows bootable medium available to test with?

2. Question - What is the brand name and model number of the laptop? It may be the case that a search will reveal similar problems with that model (solved or unsolved).

3. Comment - with regard to

I can't do that, because how could I boot from an installation media if I can't get into the bios?
If previously you had had the BIOS set up to boot from bootable USB stick (if present) first each time, then you would simply boot up, without having to use Function or Escape key combinations.

I have my secondary rig, a Toshiba Satellite, set up in this fashion, works every time, and the day it doesn't will be because it needs repairs.

4. Question - Which DE (Desktop Environment) version of Manjaro.

5. Comment - on the basis of how you go here, it is a good investment to have a bootable USB stick with Timeshift on it. Does not solve all problems, but can fix many.

Cheers and good luck

You are confusing me somewhat - do you still have Manjaro on this computer?

Do you still have Windows 10 on this computer?

Please clarify.

Você está me confundindo um pouco - você ainda tem Manjaro neste computador?

Você ainda tem o Windows 10 neste computador?

Por favor, esclareça.

Thanks for that.

I am not a hardware expert, so in the absence of other ideas, I would have to follow the advice of my friends above, and that is that the laptop has a hardware issue that might need repairs/replacement.

Good luck.

Wizard

BTW if you do get a solution to this perhaps you can come back and tell us so that we can add it to our knowledge? Thanks.

Obrigado por isso.

Não sou um especialista em hardware, então, na ausência de outras ideias, eu teria que seguir o conselho de meus amigos acima, que o laptop tem um problema de hardware que pode precisar de reparos / substituição.

Boa sorte.

Mago

BTW, se você conseguir uma solução para isso, talvez possa voltar e nos dizer para que possamos adicioná-la ao nosso conhecimento? Obrigado.
[/CITAR]it must be a hardware problem, I think the only way out is to take it for maintenance, thank you all for your help!
