You will have to open the cabinet and check the drive to see if it is connected to the mother board and or that the ribbon cable is is connected if so next step is to remove the hard drive and replace it.
Reload windows.
You may be able to retrieve data from the hard drive by using a Linux live CD. This is found on the Ubuntu site download on another PC create a CD and then see if you can mount the hard drive.

HP PAVILION ZV5000 WONT BOOT UP HAS POWER ON LIGHTS AND NOTHING PLEASE HELP!


I had this same problem with my Emachines W3609 PC, it had the power on lights and nothing else. Try making sure that the hard drive and everything is connected properly inside. If the hard drive or RAM isn't connected it won't turn on. If that doesn't solve your problem than you might just need to get a new hard drive and re-install which ever Windows OS you want. Should work than.

It is possible for the Windows operating system on your eMachines computer to have a critical failure. If the operating system on your eMachines computer is failing, you can use your recovery discs to restore your computer. Recovery discs come with your purchase of an eMachine, and contain your operating system and all your basic drivers. You can recover your eMachines W series in about an hour.

Turn off your computer and press "F8" to enter the BIOS menu. Tab over to the "Boot Sequence" or "Boot Order" menu. Move your optical drive to the top of the list. Press "F11" to exit and save changes. Insert your recovery disc into your optical drive, then restart your computer. Press any key to boot from disc. Select the "Full Recovery" option from your recovery disc menu. Allow the recovery procedure to complete. Hope this helps.
