Since it has a Asus motherboard the delete key should get you in the BIOS
Turn it on & as siin as you push the power button start tapping the Delete key.
Once you are in the BIOS check to see if the HD shows.
After that check the boot order to make sure it's set to boot the HD.
If the problem persists I suggest removing the HD & reinstalling it
The only way to determine if the HD or something else has been damaged would be to try a known good HD in it.
