Re: unable to get to start up screen
This means that your laptop is not recognizing your hard drive. Boot into the BIOS and see if the hard drive is recognized there. If it is, then just the windows installation may be bad and need to be re-installed. If the hard drive doesn't appear in the bios then, the hard drive may be bad.

Yes, your analysis of the problem is correct. The problem could be with the hardware & while you are trying to reinstall the Windows OS, the software checks on all hardwares before installing. The best solution would be to take your system to a nearest service provider & get the problem rectified. Once the problem is rectified by them, try to reinstall the OS along with them, so that if there is any other problem apart from the above they will be able to help you.
