Did you tried to reset your bios first?

What hardware did you overclock gpu or cpu , both?

ssd and ram should not be fried and replaced.

check your Motherboard  cpu and gpu only one of them could be broken...

Give more info please about what you are overclocking

the cpu is really old so i bought a 940xm for it.

also a new motherboard for it.

new ram (16gb)

i overclocked the gpu too much i think, not cpu.

but the on button wont even respond anymore.

going to get a 970m from woodstacks soon

I think your Motherboard is gone, take out the gpu and look if it boots.

Maybe you better bought a new laptop instead, how much did all these parts costs?

I'd just go eBay for a 970m, I just sold mine last week....I upgraded to 980m. The 10-15% improvement was too much to resist, and it was only $50 more than what I sold my 970m for :cupcake:.

 

Either way, 970m is a great card for the M15x and OC's like crazy too. The 980m I had to make a dual psu (240w x 2), as any attempt to OC would trip my single psu.
