Tl;dr my pc got bricked during a windows 10 update.

MoBo has no ports for monitors (x99a plus) and the gpu (despite running) is not sending pictures to my screen.

This means I cannot tell where in the boot up sequence I am.

My question: If it had failed to load into or out of the bios and I hit the power button, it would instantly power down correct?

If that is true, would my logic of thinking that since it doesn't instantly power off (hitting the power button does not trigger a shut down at all) that means the pc is doing something within windows correct?

Yes if you are just in the Bios it should shut down immediately.It probably means your video drivers got borked during the update. You can try to get into safe mode but win 10 makes that very hard now. This is supposed to be a way :"
  • Hold the power button to shut down and repeat this over 3 times until you see the Recovery screen.
  • Click the buttons See advanced repair options > Troubleshoot > Advanced options > Windows Startup Settings > Restart."

Yeah I was looking at that but i don't even see bios on my screen so even if I got there, I couldn't see it.

Try reseating your GPU. Do you have a spare GPU you can try? Is it a MSI X99A SLI Plus?
