    1) try with a different keyboard since you say nothing happens when you press ESC. You never know
    2) failing ard drives are well known for halting the POST

    We are going to need to solve the no BIOS problem first before moving to whatever happened with the hard drive.

    We should know what we are dealing with. Your "My Computer" System Specs show a Lenovo Desktop. More specs or at least a model number would be helpful.

    Basic diagnostic procedure to solve problems at the BIOS level is to strip the system down to the basic core components: Processor, RAM, Graphics, and Motherboard (with any integrated motherboard devices).
    You don't need to remove anything, just disconnect all internal and external disk drives, all USB connected devices (except mouse and keyboard at first), and the ethernet cable if you have one.
    Then see if you can get into the BIOS.

    If you can, then you add devices back to the system one a time until you hit the problem again. Note the problem device.

    But, even doing all that, how do I boot into the BIOS? I don't seem to have that option at startup

    I can't be sure not knowing the model number, but Google says that Lenovo Desktops use the F1 key to enter the BIOS.

    Starting with the PC off.
    Then, press the power button on the case to turn it on.
    Immediately start pressing the F1 key about once a second.
    This should bring up the BIOS home screen.

    If Windows starts loading you missed it. Turn it off and start over.

    I wonder if Lenovo only offers limited BIOS access. That info on the screen is what you would get in a BIOS.

    You said that pressing ESC did nothing. But did anything happen? Did the screen change or was there any activity?

    If the hard disk won't start and you can't get any BIOS information on the hard drive then my next suggestion would be to get your hands on a bootable version of a disk utility program like Minitool Partition Wizard or Easeus Partition Master and see what can be done from there.
    But if you can't get the Startup Menu to show then I'm not sure how you would do that.
