Windows 7: Black screen- "operating system not found" Sony Vaio VPCEH

Black screen- "operating system not found" Sony Vaio VPCEH

Sat watching SkyGo and the screen freezes. I couldn't click anything or restart the computer. I powered down and when I turned it on I get a black screen with operating system not found!

I have read a few threads with support but I am really struggling to follow them. A few bit of information that will help though from what I have read...

I don't have a windows 7 disk, it came already installed.
I have downloaded partition wizard bootable CD as suggested in another thread but I don't know how to boot it up on my broken machine. The disk doesn't read/ I still get the black screen.
I'm resigned to the fact that I will probably lose all my data and need a new hard drive but I'm willing to try everything and anything before going down that route as I really can't afford to buy anything for a month or so and my laptop is essential to my job.

Please help and be as condescending and patronising as possible. I'm not ashamed to admit I'm way out of my depth here!

Thanks!

appologies, I mean the screen is black but at the top left it says... "operating system not found". The screen is not the issue.

When I press any button on this screen it repeats the phrase.

The hard drive is hitatchi 750GB that came with the Vaio

Hirens- boot from hard drive wont work. Keeps resetting to menu.

Is the hard drive burnt out then if it wont register ?
