This sounds like root kit need to either remove drive and piggyback to another computer and run a full virus check macafee or kapersky have root kit checkers.or leave it in place and get hold of a Hirens boot disc .this is free multi programmed fix disc and downloadable , just google can then burn it to disc or USB.go to bios to select drive order and then the disc will install a small xp windows version on the ram so the hard drive doesn't need to be involved .test disc is a good program to try when hdd remain unseen , one of the many tools on hirens.this will correct the mft of the hdd which can also prevent it being recognised by windows.

Wont start can see picture tho

One or more drivers may be currupt.
Try booting in safe mode and see if it completes booting, if so go to device manager and look if there is a yellow asstrick or red question mark at any device, if so the driver needs to be reinstalled and the device needs to be enabled.
Shut down and try botting normally, if you still are unable to boot normally, disconnect all usb devices connected to the computer, with the exception of the keyboard and mouse, and see if it boots up normally.
I hope this helps.
Good luck and have a pleasent day.
