When I boot up my system, I received the following error message:

"Non-system disk or disk error
Please remove and strike any key when ready"

I am not able to run the HP BIOS hard disk drive diagnostic because it is grayed out.

When I attempt recovery using my Windows XP disk, I receive an error that no hard drive is available.  
My hard drive is Seagate 40GB AT Disc Drive.

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
