Answers :

Try taking out the hard drive and putting it in an external hard drive enclosure to see if the hard drive and operating system is ok. If you can not access the hard drive then you should try installing a new hard drive and operating system.

How old is the laptop and is it sued a lot. Is it left running 24 hours a day.

Hard drives fail all of the time and it sounds like yours died.
