Can you explain what's happening? Unless you were in the middle of
updating grub, it's unlikely that you've corrupted any of the actual
boot process. But maybe the filesystem needs checking.

I accidentally turn off my computer with the power button. That
in corruption of "BIOS start". The motherboard has
For most systems, BIOS settings are stored in battery backed memory and
will not be affected by a power failure until the battery dies. There
however, some systems that have "power fail" actions that may update
the BIOS settings so the system responds differently after an intentional
shutdown versus a power failure.
If the battery dies, the BIOS should revert to "default" settings, which
mean UEFI boot. You should enter the BIOS configuration utility (which
usually requires pressing a vendor-specific key when booting) and
boot settings. If the system is several years old or has been
for long periods you should check the battery (generally a small
on the motherboard).
I found the problem. The things are the computer has to hard drives and
the boot order of the hard drives where switched in the BIOS. I fix it
in the BIOS and could boot normally.
