Question about ASUS G73JW-XA1 17.3-Inch Gaming Laptop - Black (Republic of Gamers) PC Notebook
Cant access safe mode or bios(attempting to do so shuts down computer), lights still work and fan goes full blast after 5-10 second delay. previously had kernel state based blue screens. on last boot up before issue, computer hardlocked on desktop with only bootup programs running.
That sounds like the GPU is cooked. The CPU is heating up trying to drive the GPU that is not responding.

What you need to do is to get the manual for the motherboard os you can reset the BIOS. On the other hand, you may not be able to preform that. This model is like a netbook and try this, remove the battery and the power cord. give it 15min. put the battery back in and reboot the system and than the power cord. that should help. if not, than a tech person is your next step.

Have you tried booting and pressing F2 to get in the bios?
If that works you can check the boot devices and order of usage. Make sure the HDD is first.
Apart from that you can reboot and press F8 to get in the Windows boot menu, where you can try the Safe Mode.
If all this fails, the Windows configuration is somehow corrupt. You can try booting from a Windows CD and run the Repair option in the setup.

Windows Start-up Errors
Step one, you need a Windows Installation CD. If you only have a recovery disk set like the ones from HP or Compaq they will not do what you need done. Under normal circumstances however, you can use a Dell disk because the Operating system is on a stand-alone disk. All retail versions are also acceptable as well as upgrade disks. For a rule of thumb, if the disk has the Microsoft hologram it should work.
While the computer is first starting up and you see the manufacturers splash screen, tap F12 (some computers it’s F9, others it may be another key, you may have to watch and see if the computer lists the key strokes for getting to the boot menu. If you still cannot find it, boot into the BIOS settings and change your boot order there. Save your settings and exit, the computer will now seek the cd rom as its boot source first.
Place your Windows disk in the computer and start it up. When you see the test at the top of the page “Press Any Key To Boot From CD” Just hit the space bar to activate. The next screen you will see will most likely be a Windows setup screen, when you see this press the “R” key to get to the recovery console. It will get there, it may take a little time, patience. Once it loads you will be given a choice of Windows installations, there should only be one, if there are more, always pick number one. It may ask for an administrators password, if you have not set this particular password, then just leave it blank and press enter. The next prompt you see is:
You need to type the following:
hit enter. Pay close attention to the spacing between the characters. There is a space between the character “d” and the “\”
You are now at the ROOT of the drive, this is where basic commands can be given and changed. You should now see the following:
Now type the following:
Hit the enter key.
The chkdsk /r command also includes the P command and will also look for lost recoverable information in bad sectors.
There are occasions depending on how corrupt the system is, that this process could take several hours, so be patient with it.
Now, after chkdsk has run type the following:
Hit the enter key.
It may prompt you with a warning, that’s ok, just continue. When fixboot has finished, type: EXIT hit enter and windows will reboot. When the system reboots, tap the F8 key during this time and you will see the multi-boot menu come up. Scroll to the title “Last Know Good Configuration” and hit the enter key. If you were having some simple drive errors this should have fixed them.

It sounds like you may have 2 problems. 1) as you've state you have a virus; this being the case I suggest reinstalling your operating system. 2) if it's blue screening at BIOS then you most likely have an issue with your memory\RAM. The virus shouldn't be causing it to blue screen while in the BIOS; although it's not unheard of. When you reinstall Windows you will lose everything. You can restore; if you have a recovery partition, by tapping F8 while booting up. It should go to a black screen with white text. If you see Utilities or Recovery, then select that and press enter. If you don't have a recovery partition then you will have to use a recovery disc to reinstall. If you don't have a disc or a CD\DVD ROM then you will be better off taking it to a repair shop where they should have what is needed to reinstall your operating system.
