media test failure

I managed tog et my computer m\to see the monitor but now it keeps saying something about media test failure or something. I checked my BIOS and it said that my hard drive is not installed even the hard drive is running. My computer cannot see the hard drive for some reason and I don't what I can do from there. Does anyone know how to handle an HP VL420 Vectra? I am trying to reinstall my computer or at least repair the files. To think this all started with BSOD.

In no particular order.
1- Try to replace the HDD cable for another one.
2- Try to connect to another IDE/SATA entrance.
3- Try to see if the HDD works in another PC.

With this you should get to see if it's:
1- cable gone bad
2- IDE/SATA entrance gone bad
3- power cable gone bad
4- HDD gone bad
5- maybe something in bios gone bad coz you changed something (see if reset bios works)
