SOURCE: How can i reboot my laptop?

It is either not seeing the HDD and/or the boot sector on the hdd has been damaged. Any repair you do will only be possible after you boot to an environment. If you can get a bootable CD made, that would be one option. Bootable USB is another. Once booted, you will then be able to examine the HDD to see what the problem is.
Does the bios show a HDD at all?

Try installing on top of its self. It may create another directory and rename the original Window (old). This however will cause you to lose your settings like installed apps and documents. They will be in the OLD folder, but not readily accessible on the new install.

Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.
