PC fails to boot

Aight so, I was on my PC yesterday and suddenly windows went to BSOD. It showed me "Error 0xc0000428 (the digital signature of this file couldn't be verified)". 

 

Without thinking much I clicked on the restart button and then PC went up to the motherboard logo screen and got stuck. I kinda panicked and tried to go into my bios but it didn't work. I tried restarting again but this time it just goes to a black screen and after a few seconds reboots.

 

I did try reseating the rams and using one stick on each slot but issue still persists. I also tried taking the CMOS battery out and tried to boot into the backup bios but no luck. Any suggestions? (GIGABYTE GA-H81M-S2PV)

Did you try a different drive?

Your symptoms point to a storage drive failure.

I have a SSD(OS) alongside a HDD. Should I try unplugging them at a time and check?

Try unplugging them and try booting from a USB drive.

You can flash a Linux live CD for testing unto the USB drive.

 

If that doesn't work then it's not the storage.
