Start with the basics

I always like to start at the ground work up. Check the connections and reseat them all. Then use your start up, disk run FDISK to see if it can find the hard drive. If it can't then usually the hard drive is bad. Before changing the drive out, lookthru your setup screens to see if the BIOS has the right parameters for your hard drive. If the battery is going bad on the MB it will lose the settings. Just some ideas, I hope they help.
