    I had a problem similar to this once where a virus had severely corrupted the boot sector and multiple portions of the hard disk. My solution then was to boot the system with a floppy, format the drive, and start over.

    This is a last-resort solution, and I don't advise it unless you're fairly certain you have no other alternatives of rescuing your system.

    Have you checked to make sure everything is plugged in properly, inside and outside the case?
