Calm down, be patient. Don't jump to conclusions.

After you turn on the computer, tell me, EXACTLY what you see, hear and happens.

If your running XP, pop in your XP disk and see if it doesn't detect any partitions, if it does see if you can't repair it.

If you really did delete the partition, then you can't recover the information without paying a company big money to do it.

Don't qoute me, but I think if a partition is deleted, you can't recover the information using normal means.
