Hard disk not detected while XP installation


While shutting down my hp pavillion laptop, one pop-up came asking not to shut down and it was showing some "installing 1 of the 75". Unfortunately power went off and laptop got shutdown suddenly as it was not having battery charged.
When i started my laptop on next day, it was just showing blank while booting.

I tried to install XP but it shows "Hard disk not Found."

Can any one help me how to solve this problem?

I dont want to lose my data if its crashed...

Please help me on this....

Thanks in advance.....
