Verify that you can see the MDF and LDF files for the tempdb database.

Any disk issues in Event Viewer?

Run this query and verify that the filenames exist in the defined locations (this is where SQL Server thinks the tempdb files should exist):

select name, filename from master..sysaltfiles where name in ('tempdev', 'templog')

For something so urgent, I'm surprised there haven't been follow-up posts from PatDeV.
