As for Sel disk, can you explain just a little bit more ? I did as told and typed "Sel disk
But then changed "#" to "1" it then said "Disk 1 is now the selected disk." Am I doing this right?

You need a working HD Drive first. As disk 0.

It shows two disks are plugged in but neither have any recognized disk space.

Continue with the steps I gave you to see if when Selecting Disk 0 and then 1 (Sel disk 0) it shows any partitions and then when they are selected it will Detail each partition.

If it says it is now the selected disk when you type Sel disk 1 then obviously you have selected it. Proceed!

If it won't show or detail partitions then I would run the manufacturer's diagnostics on it, determining the brand by looking on the drive. Are there two drives? Or just replace it.

Disk 0 & 1 are USB posts, some MOBO's do this. As in picture above.

Thanks, Ray. That would explain why there is "No Media" and no size.

*screams* ahh I'm just going to assume my Hard drive doesn't work anymore.... I don't know wh.. Anyway, Thank you everyone for your help/support, and for patience. I think I'm going run manufacture diagnosis, on my hard drive what numbers do I look for 4 my make and model? Also if I do replace hard drive, do I have to install OS on it? Thanks..

Look for the make & model of HDD.
Yes, you will need to reinstall Windows.

What if I buy a hard drive from Best Buy, will those be compatible with my computer? I want one with 1TB of memory also, is there ways so I can prevent this from happening in the future? I had another computer, it lasted right to the last megabyte with zero problems.. It's ironic because that was the older computer

It should say the brand name on the hard drive. If not google the model number.

Otherwise boot Partition Wizard CD to run Surface Scan linked earlier.

I've also already told you that you will need to do a Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7. If you follow the steps in the tutorial you will get and keep a perfect install.

Take the HDD to Best Buy to buy replacement. The best upgrade you can get for Win7 is an SSD, faster than buying a high end gaming PC without one.
