Turn the PC off by holding in the power button for a few seconds or by using a reset button if you have one. Start over.

Lets start again. What happens now when you try to start normally or by using F8 and Safe Mode. If neither method gets you anywhere what messages, if any, are you being presented and can you get into the BIOS setup and see if the Hard Drive is detected there.

And -- if you cant boot to the hard drive can you boot to a boot floppy or boot cd?
