If you can boot from a 64Gb USB Flash Drive (in the bios) that might save your computer from the trash, if no one else has a fix for your hard drive problem.

Do you have an external hard drive you could connect to the USB port and try that?

Hi :) 

It sounds like your hard drive has crashed, run a hard drive test in DOS ...Hirens cd etc...

All the best Brett :)
