It sounds like there is a hard drive issue.
It may have come unplugged or maybe it died.
Did you drop the laptop?
Does the laptop look like it has been dropped, before?
How old is it?

It may be a problem with the Master Boot Record. (MBR).

Do you have a windows CD available to boot from ?

If so boot into recovery mode and run the fixmbr command.
