Hi zach123 ,
Try using the Novo button to turn on the system ,as this gives Novo Menu for BIOS setup .
Check if the harddrive is still detected .
How was the display without the harddrive ?
You can test the harddrive integrity placing it on an external harddrive enclosure and check if readable on another pc.
Try booting on a rescue media and check its performance and boot.
Update us how things go.

Thank you for the fast reply It's a lenovo y40-70 I should have mentioned that I tried booting with another hard drive and the rescue media even still got the same thing I am starting to suspect it's the monitor magnetic sensor. Thank you

Hi zach123 ,
Just to confirm. what we have now:
Power LED is solid on.
Onscreen and external same no display (same in booting on a different media).
Cap lock /num lock no indicator led response ( input to led output is not processing on machine level).
No access to BIOS (even if turned on using the Novo button) . No Lenovo logo display.
It is possible for a No POST issue (power on self test).
Try removing the harddrive as it may be the same solid power led with no display and non responsive caps/num lock , no lenovo logo or BIOS access as similar to this case.
Service center intervention may be needed for probable replacement board if there be no changes even on reseating heatsink assembly .
