If this is a laptop, remove the hard drive then replace it - they do sometimes jar loose.

Sorry - just noticed you say PC. Would still be worth opening the case and re-seating the HDD data cable.

Age of PC make / model?

  1. possible problem with mechanics of hard drive / cable connection / power to hard drive.

  2. corrupt windows boot files on hard drive.

  3. Can you boot into BIOS (Setup) and see if the PC is detecting the hard drive?

2 if the PC can see the HDD then its possibly a software problem do you have an XP CD?

Do a Drive check with the Windows Utility But it could be Heat or PSU problems
