Maybe check in the Bios that your hard drive is set to boot first.

probably not that but worth a try till someone can give you better advise.

Yea I've been in BIOS and set the HDD but unfortunately that didn't fix it

Have you tried booting from a USB drive with a linux distro or a windows media boot drive,

it is possible your hard drive is corrupt or dying and may need to run a chkdsk /f/r

or even replace the HDD

Did you perhaps transfer that hard drive from another computer and trying to boot it up from another mother board. If so, the blue screens are from the hard disk controller.

Does your computer ever go into "Attempting repairs"? which then can allow you to access command prompt? Blue screens are generally easy to fix, your main issue is that you need to somehow access command prompt to run a chkdsk.
