Emachine "Operating System Not Found"/"No Hard Drive Found"

  1. I am a newbie and am having a problem with my eMachine m5312. When I booted it up it said "Operating System Not Found" I have the Windows XP disk, which I then tried to install and when it says its going to start Windows, it says hard drive not found? What would cause this and how do I fix it??

    It was working just fine on Monday. It does get hot, but I have one of those fans that you set it on to suck the heat so the laptop doesnt overheat.
