(This may not help or apply at all but..)

I had something very similar like this happen to me before. I had a bad power outage that actually fried my PSU on my computer (pop fizz smoke, all 9 yards). After hooking up a new PSU, I was getting power to almost everything except my SSDs, nothing loaded from the SSDs but I was able to get a bios launch. At the time I did not know where to look and just though my SSDs were fried. I have 3, so i pulled them all out and tried one at a time with no avail. I tried different ports, cables, 2 at once, 3 at once in different order and nothing would work. What I eventually tried was the CMOS reset button (i think thats what it was) on my motherboard. Pressed it a few times, turned the computer on and pressed it some more (really had no idea how it was supposed to be used) and the little LED error screen would cycle through some codes which I didnt see before. I let the pc just sit for a bit while it cycled and stopped, restarted the computer and checked the bios > boot devices and out of no where I saw my SSDs pop up. All 3. I had to re-arrange which SSD to boot from but atleast I was getting acknowledgement, then from that point on my computer worked fine. BUT i will add, my power button on my computer no longer works, If i shutdown my computer, the only way to power it back on is using the CMOS button on the back and then going into my bios and setting the correct primary boot SSD and everything works as normal.

*EDIT*
Changed "hard drives" to "SSD" for clarity
