Hello,
\015\012 First you must attempt to check the boot order in the bios to make sure that your hard drive is listed first. Then while you are in the bios, do a hard drive diagnostics if available. Re-boot after saving your new settings and see if it comes up.
\015\012 If it does not show up, take the hard drive out and re-insert it. If the hard drive shows up as a device. You may need to re-install your operating system & drivers due to a Virus or Static Shock.. If so, do the following:
\015\012To restore system software from the hard drive backup copy:
\015\0121
Restart the computer, then press F11 when prompted to start the
\015\012restore process. The System Recovery program starts. You have
\015\012three seconds to press F11 before Windows starts.
\015\0122 Click a system restore option. For more information, see

Operating system is the main program of the computer. It can b easily detected by your computer in boot up. So if the computer doesn't detect it, this are the steps you can try :

\012
    \012
  1. First try to run system restore if you have one.
  2. \012
  3. If you don't have system restore disk, or back up disk, you can remove your hardisk from your laptop and try to connect it to other computer as an external hard drive. in that, you can copy important files and back up it in other computer if it is not also deleted.
  4. \012
  5. Then if you have back up your file or not, you must format your hard disk. return your hard disk to your laptop and format it.
If you don't know how to format just ask again here.
