When you power-on the computer, keep pressing the appropriate (F2?) key that will let you into the 'Boot menu' - from this menu, select 'hard disk' as the 1st boot device in the boot sequence, and exit. If everything else is ok, the computer will boot up.

If you want to boot from the 'recovery CD', then select the appropriate DVD drive as the 1st boot device in the boot sequence. Proceed from here.

After you finish doing what you intended to do, don't forget to reset the boot sequence to boot from the hard disk as the 1st boot device.

This is the laptops way of saying it does not even see the internal hard drive, I fear.....

We will hope that it has simply backed it's way of of a connector or something simple...

Under boot devices and boot sequence. HDDs, DVDs, Floppies, etc will be listed. From this list, the desired boot device (and boot sequence) can be selected.

Changing the boot sequence is generally convenient for trouble-shooting purposes, after which it is preferable to designate the HDD containing the OS to be the first boot device.
