Question about Computers & Internet
Go to bios setup and see if the unit is detecting the hard disc drive...it should be on the first page of bios...if it does "see" the hard disc, then get out of setup and go to F12. (you will need your operating system disc for this next step). Choose to boot from the cd. It may ask you if you are sure you want to do this. The operating system will ask you what you want to do. Select the option from the list. It may ask you if you want to repair the installation...select this option if avail....if not, depending on which O/S you have , you may be able to reload the system without losing what you have stored on the computer. If at anytime it asks you to reformat the hard disk..you don't want to do this as this will erase everything on the hard disk drive. Now, if the computer does not "see" the hard disk in the BIOS menu, then your hard drive may have failed and you will need to obtain a new one and reload it with the O/S and all software you want...unfortunately...if the hard disc is bad then you will have lost all info on it...there are some data recovery services out there...but they can be expensive(depending on how important your data is).
