Do you have another Windows 7 computer?


If so you can make a boot disc from that.

Was your computer working before? If yes, what is the OS you were using...


To start with it will be worth to check in BIOS if your HDD is visible... If it is not then you may want to reseat the HDD cables(Power and data, make sure computer is powered off) and give another try...


If HDD is visible then make sure that it is on top of boot order.


All this applies if you have OS installed in an active partition on HDD.
