Hi,

You're CMOS (BIOS) battery may be dead if system more than 3 years old.

Since CMOS battery keeps hard drive parameters in BIOS, and these are lost due to a dead battery, the system cannot recognize the hard drive.

Try entering the BIOS setup and check for an hard drive autodetect option. Save and exit. Parameters may stick for a reboot but if lost when opening the system later than you will have to get a battery replacement.
