    There are plenty of points in the posts above you should consider.

    Just taking one relating to booting from a bootable disk:

    As I've pointed out about 3 times... this is how that may have to be done:

    a. Plug in (verified working) bootable disk.
    b. Start PC
    c. As it starts, repeatedly press the appropriate key for your BIOS/MBO type
    d. A menu is displayed where you choose the disk you boot from.

    Have you yet considered this, which I've repeatedly described?

    I have done this several times, f11 brings up my bios.
    As well as set from bios to have the system boot from the usb.

    Do you see a boot menu when you press F11?

    And is F11 the correct key for your MBO?

    Or do you in fact see a boot menu, try to select your bootable disk, then find you get back to the BIOS because the disk isn't bootable?

    Sorry I'm having to ask questions like this but you need to think respondents can't see what you're seeing.

    When i press f11 on restart I see a small menu that will let me enter bios or boot up the usb.

    Great. Detail matters.

    So presumably you select the supposedly bootable USB disk and it fails to boot.

    Therefore either:
    a. Your PC has a fundamental problem
    b. Your disk isn't actually bootable.

    Check (b) first.

    Sorry for the delay.
    A friend contacted someone in their family that knows their pc stuff. Long story short they're sending me a usb that definitely boots.
    Ill update when it gets here.

    Hello again everyone.
    Had a pc repair man come to my place, tried a lot of bootable usbs out.
    When they didn't work he tried disconnecting both SSD and HDD.
    Long story short - the SDD is fine, and the HDD is possibly dying.
    Pc booted up and reinstalled windows perfectly not seen the pc boot so fast in years.
    When he tried connecting the HDD the system didn't recognise it nor was it turning on.
    It did however suddenly start back up again after unplugging and plugging back in again.
    Possibly dust or something on the pins?

    Thanks for the update.

    Ideally it would be as simple as a connection problem.

    Get a copy of Hard Disk Sentinel (a portable version is available). Full functional trial- excellent.
    I have seen this even report on cable connections.

    Result right on its GUI- just run it.

    I finally got around to trying sentinel, but now I'm confused..?
    It says my hdd is 100% fine, the sdd is at 23% health, but performing at 100%?

    I had windows installed to the sdd, does this mean i might need to install if i got another sdd to replace this one?
