Yesterday i was surfing net when suddenly my system stopped responding. I waited for 5-10 mins but it dint come back so i pressed the reset button and that's where i guess i made a mistake. Since then whenever i try to start my pc a black screen appears saying "Select a proper boot device to boot".

I checked the boot device priority in the BIOS and found out that HDD is missing from there. However sometimes it shows itself there but still the system comes up with the same message. Someday's back i faced the same problem but that time the problem was solved when i unpluged my HDD and plugged it back. But now it is not working at all.

Can someone please tell me what is the problem with it? Is there any problem with my HDD or motherboard??

Most likely the hard drive. If it won't appear in BIOS, there is nothing you can do. You can't even test it. You'll have to take it out and connect it to another machine for testing.
