Hi Caleb,
could you enter the BIOS of that machine,what is the device's recognision,,,what is the boot order,,,
do you receive any bios specific messages on the boot screen,if you haven't made it still- disable the quick boot option and see what are the messages ,when computer boots up,,,
you can provide us also some more info like:
pc :make,model/if special,
mobo:make,model,
BIOS:model  .

Perhaps the power cord was damaged and is arcing internally.

A power interruption while a machine is runnign can wipe out the hard drive.  It's rare, but it can happen.
