Hi kapoorsanj,

Please try the below mentioned steps and check if this helps:

1. Check in the BIOS if the Hard Drive is detected.
2. If the Hard Drive is not listed in BIOS, Load the BIOS Defaults and then restart the computer.
3. If you again get the same screen, take a technician's help to reseat the Hard Drive (if you wish to do it yourself you can refer to the service manual).
4. After reseating if the Hard Drive is not detected again, you need to replace the Hard Drive.
5. If the Hard Drive is listed in Step 2, run the Diagnostics provided by the manufacturer (if any) on the Hard Drive.
6. If the Diagnostics fails contact the manufacturer for repair or replacement.

Do reply with results.
