Damaged Hard Drive/Partition

Big problem here, I turned off my computer and when I turned it back on, Windows wouldnt start. I put in my recovery CD and it said
"Operating system: Unknown on (Unknown) Local Disk"

Then i went into the command prompt and put "diskpart", then "list disk", and it shows up like this:

DISKPART> list disk

DISK ### Status Size Free Dyn Gpt
--------- -------- ------ ----- --- ---
Disk 0 .. No Media 0 B 0 B
(sorry if it looks weird, this forum wont let me edit what I put above the way I want it to)

Will I have to get a new hard drive? Should I put "select disk 0" and then "clean"? Did I get infected by a virus?
