Problems booting from USB stick

My computer is booting straight into blue recovery screen with winload.exe error (broken MBR i think) and I cant get it fixed. I've tried few bootable usb sticks with windows 10 but it seems my computer wont boot from them. This is totally new problem for me ever to come around.

Tried to make USB's with Windows Creation Tool. Also downloaded the ISO and used rufus to make two different setups one for MBR and NTFS and one for GPT and FAT32. Either one didnt wanted to boot up.

Boot sequence doesnt make a difference, neither booting through the boot menu. Have tried updating BIOS, pulled the CMOS battery out for a few minutes, disabled Fast Boot, Secure Boot and CSM, also tried CSM on auto mode, didnt make a difference.

I've read up many forums about the problem with some people getting it solved but I just cant get pc to boot from USB so I could start the repair or Command prompt to manually fix the MBR.

Anyone had similiar problem? Anyone have any ideas for a solution?

I'm a helpdesk person myself but this is beyond my understanding.

If it means anything the motherboard in use is ASUS A68HM-PLUS with UEFI BIOS.

Update if anyone is having same problems. Guilty was faulty RAM.

once you get to desktop type memory diagnosis into search box and run the program , you say changed faulty ram but this program will tell you if you have another faulty one that you don't know about.
