Question about Computers & Internet

The harddrive might be loose. check that the IDE/Ribbon Cable, or SATA wires are secure into the back of the hard disk , and where the other end of the cable meets the motherboard.
next , make sure the bootable device order is correct. that it is indeed trying to boot of the hard drive. that is done in the BIOS. Press DEL, or F12 or whatever option (sometimes F2) is displayed on the screen at the very start of the powering on state. (this is called the POST screen).
If you access the BIOS screen from the POST (the black DOS screen before windows starts) look in the listing for Logical Boot Order, and ensure that the Hard Disk Drive is listed as one of the first in the order.
try that and see what happens.
because beyond that, you might have a dead hard drive, or the master boot record on your disk is corrupt, and either of those are bad results.
