Laptop not powering on after running bootable Sierra USB

Question

Laptop not powering on after running bootable Sierra USB

What I did: Made a bootable macOS sierra USB from .dmg file.

Turned off the PC. (Which previously had Ubuntu)

Plugged the USB in. Bios successfully recognized it.

But then it kept showing a blinking screen.

So, I long pressed the power button to turn it off.

It did turn off.(Albeit, it doesn't start now.)

What's happening now: Nothing. No LEDs come up, the power button doesn't switch the laptop on.

I read somewhere that it might be a power failure, so I plugged in a usb flashlight with and without battery(on AC) and the flashlight goes on for a second. The Power LED doesn't glow. No fans. No beep. No other sounds.

What's going on?

Modele039-TX

Make: HP

Processor: Intel i5

Ram: 8GB

Sorry can not help here, Usually If it was a MacBook i would say your laptop is dead, but as this is an HP could be power failure or Bios failure nothing to do with Sierra

Thank you for responding, Sir.

 

I think you are right. But it is more likely a bios failure, since a usb flashlight still lights up when I press the power button.

 

Anyway, after I have fixed the bios, do you think the problem would persist? As in, would this happen again if I try to install sierra? 

 

More so, is it just a massive coincidence that the bios failed while booting with Sierra USB or does it point to something else?

I would advice you to try Hackintosh Yosemite

Thank you, Sir. El Capitan won't work as well?

 

Also, if it is not much trouble and since you know quite a bit of drivers and bios and Laptops, per se, is it possible to flash an empty bios chip without the EEPROM programmer ? (I have managed to fix the power by replacing the fried bios chip with an empty one)

I realize this is not a Hackintosh problem and hence you are not supposed to help me with this. I apologize.
