i was wondering if there was any way of restoring the computer to factory settings, i have run into the same problem...i do not care if my files are deleted. i just want the computer to work again.
any help would be greatly appreciated.

You could try performing a System Recovery but if the system can't find the hard drive then it very likely won't work.
Try reseatting the hard drive and booting up again
