Work through these steps for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start.

The first thing you'll want to check is what key is given on first Boot screen to enter BIOS setup, then page through the BIOS looking for evidence that your hard drive is still detected, under storage devices normally. It will often appear as a Serial Number which when googled gives you the hard drive make/model.

If it's detected then test it with the maker's HD Diagnostic extended CD scan to find out if its reparable.

If not, you can access your hard drive (normally via a port on the bottom of the correct size) to try to reseat it to get it recognized. But if that fails then you may need to replace your hard drive. This gives the opportunity to upgrade to an SSD which is the best upgrade one can get, lightning fast, faster than getting a new high-end laptop.

Read your Manual available for download on the PC model's Support Downloads webpage to find out how to reset to factory condition, if this is not posted clearly on the BIOS screen at startup.
