That diagnostic light sequence indicates a Power Rail failure. That is a motherboard issue. Was there any power issues such as power failures in the house or was the system dropped or possibly damaged in some way such as a liquid spill? Of course there also is a possibility that the SSD is defective and caused a short on the MB.

@yuz6556​ I assume recent means years ago then? And if there was a short in the drive then the damage has been done and most likely the motherboard will need replacement.
