Question about Computers & Internet
It seems like your hard drive might have failed.
Please check to see if the drive is recognized by the BIOS:
Press DEL at startup and try to find the HDD into the menus, see if it displays correctly.
If it's not there, you can try plugging it to another computer, and see if it can be recognized, if all this fails.
You need to purchase a new hard drive.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or
a operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from
it. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white
letters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice the percentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run to completion. Then reboot machine.
If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows. Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs.
In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair when the options appear.
In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recovery console and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.
