Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 1: Windows
Luckily for you, this is the easiest thing to fix. I have plenty of experience. All you need is the ability to type and read. :O! First you mead an Operating System installation cd. If you do not have one, buy one from the nearest computer store. Take the cd out of it's case and pop it into your cd drive(hope you have one). Next start up you computer. Depending on your manufacturer, somewhere on thee boot screen will say F and a number followed by something like boot menu. Press the F and the corresponding number button on your keyboard. Select cd drive. Now the operating system installation process will load. Everthing should be self explanatory from now on. The serial key is located on your cd or on the case that you bought it in.

This can happen for a few reasons.
Power to the drive has failed or the connector is loose. (check bothe the power and dada connection by unplug and replug each end one at a time.
The bios may be looking at the wrong place and maybe set to only look at one device. Check the boot order and preferences in bios (your drive should show in here if the bios sees it)
The drive has died. If its making any clicking sounds then it has most probably died. You can remove the drive and connect it to another suitable computer to check it. If it works on another computer it is quite possibly a motherboard issue.
If it does not work on another computer should replace it (maybe with a larger one even ?) and re-install your operating system.
It is also possible that the data cable has just failed as they do on occasion.
