Specs: Windows 7, 4GB DDR3 1066MHz memory
Windows 7 64-bit Startup repair output on recovery disk as follows:

Problem Event Name: StartupRepairOffline
Problem Signature 01: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem Signature 02: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem Signature 03: unknown
Problem Signature 04: -1
Problem Signature 05: ExternalMedia
Problem Signature 06: 1
Problem Signature 07: MissingBootManager
OS Version: 6.1.7600.2.0.0.256.1
Locale ID: 1033

We aren't sure what happened to cause this. Yesterday it was working just fine. It doesn't seem to be able to detect the HDD? Is that what all that Greek up there means? Command prompt from the recovery disk won't allow us access to drive c: but instead loads into x:\windows\system32\

System Restore says "you must first specify a Windows installation to restore."

System Image Recovery says it cannot find a system image on this computer.

Windows Memory Diagnostic gave a button to restart and check for errors, but when you press it, a box pops up saying:
Windows cannot check for memory problems.
(It rambles on a bit and then says to boot from the Windows Installation disk, select the tool there, and run it from the Windows Boot Manager menu.)

Thoughts, anyone? Thanks for your help in advance.

First thing to check - access the BIOS and see if there are any harddrives listed, if not then the cabling needs checking followed by the drive itself. It does look as if the system thinks there's no drive available.
