1. Check BIOS setting under Boot Devices. Make sure you have selected your hdd.
2. With ram 8gb, if you using 2 sticks then trying removing one stick and try booting with single Ram stick.
3. Unplug graphics card and see if it boots you into windows

When the computer starts up tap f8 until you get several menu options. the top option should be 'repair my computer', you should now have a very basic log in window which has your username, (if you have no password just press enter). now you should have several options of recovering or repairing your PC. The most successful so far is a normal windows restore which takes the computer back a few days, i would recommend a week to 2 weeks if available.

Check your sata cables. If all are connected properly then try another sata port.

I think it's your power supply causing the problem. Make sure your power supply is genuine & branded product(at least 80+ bronze model). The gpu you equipped requires minimum of 400watts psu and if you have some cheap psu, that could be a problem as you won't be getting enough power for your graphics card. Check out your power supply with something better and for once read your manual that you got with your gpu :)
