Lenovo Laptop
I5 8265u
Mx110
12gb ram

The PC turns off completely at the splash screen then turns on again.

Doesn't matter how many times this happens it won't go into Recovery mode,
and I can't enter the BIOS, not even by using the "Novo" button 'cos when pressing it the same thing happens -- it just turns off and on again.

I don't have a problem re installing Windows but how can I do that when I can't even select a boot device ?

Can you get access to the mobo/cmos battery ? If you can unplug your laptop from out let, take out cmos battery for about a minute. Replace cmos battery, plug in to outlet and see if it will start up.
I removed the hard drive and used a USB with windows 10 on it, it sent me to recovery, putting the hard drive back in causes the same problem.

I ordered an nmve SSD "Kingston nv1".

I'm not 100% sure it's the hard drive can you confirm? Or should I just try resetting the CMOS battery

OK then you don't need to remove battery. You can just reset settings to original/optimal settings in bios.. You can't install windows on the hard drive?
I can only access the bios if the hard drive is removed so no can't, I also reset the bios to default settings didn't help
