OK you have a problem

With either the HDD or the OS being corrupt or even maybe the HDD not being any longer entered in the BIOS. The first thing to do is enter the BIOS and AUTO DETECT the HDD if it fails to auto detect the HDD then most likely the HDD is faulty and needs replacement, if it detects the HDD but still will not boot then most likely the OS or the data on the HDD has become corrupted in some way so you;ll need to reinstall Windows and everything else as well and you'll in all likelihood lose any saved data {Hope you've backed it up recently!}

Just as a side note questions like this are better placed in the Q & A section as they get a faster response and you'll get an auto generated e-mail every someone attempts to answer you're question. ALso you are far more likely to get help from someone in you're time zone as TR is a world wide community you could get answers in this section a few days after you place the question and even then from a totally different time zone which means that the person who attempted to answer you're question is asleep when you are at work/school or whatever. So there is the time delay in answering any questions asked here.

But if all else fails you can contact me through the Peer Listings and I'll see what I can do to help you.
