What game that you installed on your computer?
Seems the error can be caused by boot loader corruption or faulty media such as hardisk unplugged.
For software related, you can try this method:
Startup Repair

Also open command prompt at startup then type:
bootrec /fixmbr
bootrec /fixboot
bootrec /rebuildbcd
bootsect /nt60 ALL

Sounds like it may be an HDD related problem. Is the HDD new?

Run HDD diagnostics - SeaTools (for DOS) - http://www.seagate.com/ww/v/index.js...00dd04090aRCRD

Burn ISO to CD with ImgBurn - http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download

Boot with SeaTools CD; run LONG test.

Also, check cables.

Yeah... either the HDD is beyond dead or as you said - cables, jumpers, etc...

I'm having a hell of a time with an old Dell 2400 - replacing HDD. Gone through several HDDs (even some from other Del 2400s); none being seen in BIOS. But the bad HDD is! Frustrating to say the least.

Is your HDD new?

You can see it in BIOS?

i took this harddrive to this computer im using now and made the test from the windows and got this..

Now is a good time to make sure you have a current backup of your important data.
Unfortunately, your Seagate product has failed an important diagnostic test, possibly caused by problem sectors which are difficult to read. Seagate recommends that you run SeaTools for DOS, which has the ability to repair most problem sectors. SeaTools for DOS may be able to save you from the inconvenience and down time of exchanging the drive. For more information on this subject
