try going into the bios and see if you can 'auto detect' ide devices,,then save and exit.
If it doesnt detect any devices then there could be a more serious problem unless there is a loose cable inside the computer.

If your bios does detect a hard drive, and it still doesnt boot, there could be either a defect with the hard drive or corrupt data in the boot sector.
