dear r machines
i wolud like post some thing i know about your problem.
remove your hdd, which gives you problem
connect with a good known pc, and check whether is working fine there or not.
if not working check power and data cable attached with your hdd.
still not working then, i can conclude your hdd have some internal
problem. correct with a appropriate service person.
if is working there you can come to know you are haveing problem with your pc.
 the problem may be power supply. check and ensure if any
if no problem, check the cmos configuration.
if every thing is fine
boot your pc with the help of startup disk.
give fdisk command in command prompt
see the partition are correct and check care fully the status active. if everthing fine in fdisk report means you are haveing your exsisting partitions.
come back to command prompt.
just type fdisk/mbr ....mmm two times o.k
then restart and try to boot from hdd.
if your fdisk reports no partition then make new partitions,make
the primary partition active.
format and reinstall the operating system.
i hope you will get it.
