First check that you have no disks in your a-drive or cd-rom.
The reason it says Please replace invalid system disk is because it cant find the operating system. try booting up with a startup disk then type c:/ then enter then type dir
If all your files show up just reinstall windows. if they dont either your hard drive went bad or you got a virus that reformated your hard drive or deleted system files.
maybe the ribbon or power plug to the hard drive is loose or disconnected If you can get to the C prompt with the boot disk the power plug and ribbion are fine
