Laptop bricked after windows install fail

I have a g73jh x1 gaming laptop that had a corrupted windows 7OS. I attempted to do a clean install of windows 8 via a external hard drive. I formatted and partitioned the OS drive and installed windows.
The install failed about a quarter of the way through (bad ISO I suspect) and after a reset I found that the laptop would make all the sounds of it booting up but the screen is completely black. It will run for hours with nothing on the screen.
I cannot boot into BIOS. It will not boot to a windows disk. It's a brick. Ive never had a hardware problem with this laptop and overall for the four years I've owned it it's been issue free.
Any advice someone could give be appreciated. I've run out of options. Thank you.

Re: Laptop bricked after windows install fail

You must have a corrupt Win8 installation now which prevents booting up. But I'm not sure why can't you enter the BIOS. What happens when you press the BIOS key during boot (Del/F2/F10)?
