First, check the physical connections to the HDD inside the computer. Make sure the cables are plugged in correctly. You could also try plugging in a different power connector, plugging the SATA cable into a different SATA port, or using a different SATA cable.

Then, Boot and go into the BIOS. Does the HDD show up there?
Have you made any changes to the BIOS before this occurred?

Then, if still stuck, and if you have a W7 installation DVD, or a W7 Repair Disk, Boot with it in the optical drive and use the Startup Repair option to see if you can repair the MBR. You may need to run the Startup Repair 3 times.
See here: Startup Repair

Do you have another computer available that you could use to test the HDD to see if you can get your important files off of it?
