So my computer was working fine all day until I noticed my computers hard drive was not showing up at all when I was attempting to open a program.
I turned my computer off hoping it was a just a fluke but now I'm forced into my Asus bios when turned on even though my windows is installed on my solid state so I should at least have windows booting.
So now I can hear the hard drive clicking when I boot the computer a sign that it's probably dead but I have no clue why it's affected the solid state. I do see it in the bios and it is set to boot priority.
Any ideas? Thanks

It's possible the boot loader is on the Hard Drive. You did not say what OS you have but if you have the install disk or System Repair Disk detach the hard drive and do a startup repair. It may take up to 3 attempts to do a complete startup repair.
