Hi, I have a Windows XP laptop computer and everytime I try to turn it on, a message saying "Primary hard disk drive 0 failure" comes up. A few seconds later another message comes up saying "No boot device available - no bootable devices--strike F1 to retry boot, F2 for setup utility" Can anyone help me so I can turn on my computer? Thanks!

Start the computer and go into BIOS (usually you tap F8). Make sure your boot order is set correctly, and that there are no floppies or cds in any drives.
