Follow the below steps.
Connect only the original hard drive in which the OS is installed. Remove any other hard disks connected.
Replace the HDD data cable.
Post the full spec of your PC.
Our next steps is to run diagnostics test on the hard drive. To do that knowing the make and model of the disk is necessary.

It appears like a Master Boot Record corruption to me. It could be happened either due to an improper shutdown or bad sectors in the hard disk. Let us first try rebuilding the boot sector.
Boot from a Windows 7 install DVD (only connect the OS HDD )
When the Install Windows screen appears, Press shift and F10 together to open a command prompt window (shift + F10)
In the command prompt, enter the following commands one by one.
Report how the system works in next reply. We should also run a full surface scan to detect bad sectors. To avoid confusion, i will post the steps in next reply.
