:welcome:   menorok,

 
Tried by a computer shop if the HDD is broke but Works 100%. Took out and put back the HDD. No change. 

 

 

Just so that we have this right (or not) do you mean that you removed the HDD from the computer then took just the HDD to the store and it checked out as being in working order, if yes, the problem could be one of the following (in no particular order btw) 1: The boot sequence in the BIOS is incorrect. 2: A poor connection being made between the HDD and MB. 3: Bad BIOS chip or CMOS battery, the answers to the following two questions may shed some light on this;

 

Is the HDD detected in the BIOS, see example attachment which shows a Western Digital Caviar on SATA port 2 and a Seagate drive on SATA port 5, is your HDD identified in such a way.

 

Are the time and date shown to be correct in the BIOS.

If your Windows 10 was installed in UEFI mode and your BIOS is changed to run in legacy mode later, your Windows partition will not be recognized during boot. Change the boot mode in your computer's BIOS setup and it should work:

I hope this will help!
