It sounds like your boot order is set incorrectly. Either that or you have ruined the hard drive somehow, such as by letting it drop or leaving it near a magnetic current or field. Try checking your BIOS boot order first, then unplug all drives except the faulty one. If it doesn't boot then, you've either corrupt the OS or the disk is faulty in itself.
