You need to format it.

To fix the question mark replace the hard drive. If that doesn't work it is probably the SATA cable which is connected to the hard drive that's the problem. Had the same problem myself. Couldn't figure out what the problem was untill I actually tried to replace the cable.

I don't think so. You will have to format your harddrive and install windows. You can drop by your local hardware store and and them to chech your harddrive. If it's nothing wrong with it, change the SATA cable.
