By informing me that your computer is unable to read your hard drive, that gives me enough reason to believe that your pc has crashed If your mother-board or hard drive is the culprit in this case you will want to make sure before you take any further steps into this matter Take your computer to the nearest computer repair shop and have them run a diagnostic test on it Have them explain to you what component of your pc is longer working By doing this you will have the option of NOT purchasing a new computer and simply buying the part that is required for your computer to come back to life Good Luck!!
