Have you run the hard drive diagnostics?
To be honest without the full POST running it's difficult to say, you should be able to display it from the system bios setup settings, but if you don't know what you're doing you could also lunch your box.
Could be an issue with the SATA controller on the drive itself, hard disk failures aren't always down to the physical platters and mechanical parts wearing out or being damaged, the controller can also cause problems, as can it's interface with the BUS (the bit that all the components are connected to and communicate with one another through).
