So here is my problem...

My partition of windows 7 decided not to boot any more and said that the boot sector or file was missing or corrupt, so i ran the windows 7 repair from the install CD. During it trying to fix the problem I lost power... and now my computer (and others i try to put it into) do not recognize the hard drive. My friends Dell gave the error during POST "Error auto-sensing secondary master drive." Any ideas on how to fix this or is my hard drive shot?
BTW, my HDD is a 2.5" SATA laptop drive.

Thanks for you help!

Is it showing in the bios?
Run manufacturer hard disk diagnostics.
