Could be a bad drive. Since you can access BIOS or UEFI boot a live linux distro like Mint Cinnamon. Make sure SecureBoot is disabled. I believe on an ASUS you tap F8 at boot to select your boot device. If Mint boots and you can get to the Mint Desktop and connects to the internet via Ethernet or Wifi then I would have to hazard a guess it's the Windows drive that is bad. Run through some of the programs on Mint like Libre Office.
You can use Rufus with the Mint iso to create a bootable USB flash drive.

Don't know if you tried this...but I would turn off the power switch on the PSU, wait a couple of minutes, turn it back on...then try booting. I would do this for no particular reason other than trying to assure myself that the PSU/CMOS battery combo... is working normally and trying to localize the problem.
