I have now had it opened and removed the cables to the SSD and the HDD and vice versa. Tried putting in a USB drive with Recovery Assistant installed on it, and nada, nothing works. Does the same thing, getting stuck at the white screen.

Also, I left it running for around 2-3 hours while I worked a couple days ago to see if it would eventually boot but it stayed on the white screen. And the main drive is an SSD so it won't make any noise (I probably should have mentioned that in my post).

Already tried removing RAM. It beeps (and stays on a black screen) with no RAM inserted. And tried each stick in isolation. I've tried three different keyboards, 2 USB and 1 bluetooth. 1 of the USBs and the bluetooth I have successfully used before to bring up the Boot Selector, and that USB was working fine minutes before this problem started (and was able to bring up the boot selector about an hour before this happened). At this point I'm fairly certain the problem is what I directed to in my edit).
