Check your boot device priority in the Bios. Make sure your Hard drive is the first boot device.

Otherwise, boot to your CD and run a diskscan on the hard drive. May be kaput.

check your connections.

Boot to cd command console and run chkdsk c: /f

I'm afraid though its looking like your HDD is broken.
