phprojekt - errno:145 - repair table - "table doesn't exist"

I am using PHProjekt and cannot access the projekte database. This happened when I tried to delete one project. Now, when I click on "projekte" menu, I can't see all of my projects and instead get the following:

Error
SQL-query :  
SHOW KEYS FROM `projekte`
MySQL said:
Can't open file: 'projekte.MYD'. (errno: 145)

When I go the SQL and type: REPAIR TABLE projekte.MYD -- I get:

projekte.MYD repair error Table 'projekte.myd' doesn't exist

Sadly, I don't have any backup. Have I lost ALL my projects information? Please help! I need to have this fixed by today! Thank you.

do you find that file in the mysql data directory (ie in the subfolder of the database you are using)?

Table: projekte
Action:  Browse  Select  Insert  Properties  Drop  Empty  (I cannot select "browse", "select" or "empty" option)
Records: in use
