Screen went black after BIOS setup

Good day everyone!
I have faced a problem yesterday regarding my laptop Asus n56vz.
Basicaly I wanted to change my CD rom to SSD. Once I did that I wanted to install windows on this new drive.
So I got Windows 10 on my USB and went to the computer's BIOS to boot from USB.
Maybe I clicked something I'm not sure but after I saved settings and exited my screen went black.
I've tried things like taking off computers battery and holding power on button; taking off computer's RAM and puting it back on diferent slot; tried conmecting to external monitor via HDMI and VGA cables and hitting fn+ f5(no response); taking off BIOS battery from motherboard and keeping it away from a computer for 10 minutes.
Do you guys perhaps have any clues?

What do you mean by " So I got Windows 10 on my USB and went to the computer's BIOS to boot from USB " .
I don't think you can boot Windows from a USB drive ....

Do you already have win10 on it in a HDD, and want to add another to the SSD?
