You need to replace the hard drive with a new one because it sounds very much like it has failed.
I hope you have kept backups of your files that are (or were) on it.

✔ Best Answer
Can you still access Windows or not? If you can no longer boot to windows, remove the hard drive and either attach it direct to PC unit or get kit that lets you hook up the hard via usb. Then use a program such as Recuva or Pc Files Inspector (both free) and recovery your data. As mentioned above, sounds like it is time to replace your hard drive. You may be able to simply copy over the files you want but if you run into issues it may be preferable to user data recovery software.
