Default Windows wont boot

I keep getting this error everytime i try and boot. It was working fine then this just happened. The hardrive can be seen in the bios and its first in the boot sequence. I've tried using the recovery console and repairing windows but it still says it can't boot. The exact errors i get are; 'Boot failure from previous device', and just 'Boot Failure'. Hope i've given enough info and i hope you can help.

Thanks for your time!

did you just install something hardware or software? yourhard drive could be failing. check to see if the bios has a smartdrive, or something similiar, if so turn it off and see what happens
