Question about Computers & Internet
Right... either your hard disk is dead to the point that your PC can't "see" it anymore, or someone has been playing around with your settings.
Restart, go into the BIOS... it's either the DEL key, or F1 or F2.. it'll say something about it briefly. (different on different PC's)
Look for a boot order somewhere in the BIOS, and check that the hard disk is one of the choices. Also just check around to see if the hard disk is even detected in the first place. There are so many different BIOS's and PC's that I could give you 20 guesses as to where to look... so be patient have have a look around. (with the arrow keys on the keyboard. enter to enter, escape to escape)
If the disk is dead, that's why it's giving you other options. If not, you can set it how it should be... but if noone has touched the PC, i'd guess that the drive *is* dead.
The latter requires a new hard disk, and some kind of installation discs to start over from scratch.

Tips for a great answer:
That's where you need to check to get solution to your problem, if not... try these
1. your settings in your bios
2. faulty cable/wire to your media device (hard drive, cd/dvd rom, etc)
3. The cmos battery (which indirectly points to your bios settings)
Hope this helps!
