My laptop has been having no issues, tried starting it today and got media connection failure, operating system not found. Messed with cmos, doesn't have anything listed after sata hdd. Is the hard drive shot?

Make a Parted Magic Boot CD and boot from this CD (no install required). See if your HDD is detected in Parted Magic.
