Answers :

If the computer cannot Bootup with an error message that hard drive nor detected or no boot device then you could have a faulty hard disk.
\015\012Go into the BIOS configuration and see if the BIOS detects the hard disk. If it is not detected then it is probably faulty.
\015\012Next reset the ATA data cable on the hard drive and at the motherboard. Bootup the computer again, also check the BIOS configuration again to see if it detects the hard drive.
\015\012If it still does not find the hard drive then remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a working computer's USB port. If this computer does not detect it as an external hard drive then this proves the hard drive is faulty.
\015\012To get your computer working again, replace the hard drive and install Windows together with the device drivers and your programs.
