    Your computer is not acknowledging that it has indeed a hard drive. I take it it has not been removed? Was the pc bumped or moved or dropped? Go into the bios and see if it acknowledges the hard drive is there - let us know...

    You need to start by downloading the disk manufacturer's diagnostic and see if it can access the drive.
