I had installed Ubuntu 12.04LTS in this summer and all was going fine. But suddenly my brother switched off the computer while it was loading the BIOS. Now when I boot, its not recognizing my hard drive in which I had installed Ubuntu 12.04LTS. I want to get back those files because I have made a project (a Periodic Table) and I have to submit it next month and still 50% of the application is left. I had put in lot of efforts for that and I forgot to take backups. I even tried to boot ubuntu from the live CD but then too its not recognizing the hard drive. And the BIOS is saying "no boot loader found". Please suggest something?

I would remove the cables and re-connect them, or even try different sata/power cables.
Also, try to power off the computer and unplug it from the power socket (leave it unplugged for 1-2 minutes).
Can you provide a screenshot of ubuntu running "disk utility" from a live cd? Edit your question and add it.
