✔ Best Answer
Most likely the hard drive has failed, something which happens to all hard drives eventually.

If you want confirmation you can test it with diagnostic software which loads from a bootable CD, such as:

HGST Drive Fitness Test:


Seagate SeaTools for DOS:

Instructions for creating the CD are on the download pages.
