its not bios problem

download known working dmg for that model
find and istall program called TransMAC and write .dmg to usb
plug usb and turn on mackine but hold button for boot menu (for some model it is C, sometimes its ALT or sometimes is OPTION key) and it must give options like boot from disk, boot recovery or boot from usb

that is what you need

its is a very common problem with the amd gpu going bad on this model. the best solution is to replace the chip with a new one. i have reflowed a lot of them but they only work for some months before going bad again.

You need experience to remove the chip and install a new one . iF you are not sure if you can do it i am sure you can find someone in your area that replaces gpu ics.

Good luck!

PS: I've made a ME Region cleaning to my original dump and worked like a charm. Let me know if you need me tu upload it.
