You have a hardware problem. More then like the hard drive is failing, failed, or totally corrupted (but hard drives do not get totally corrupted without a hardware problem).

How old is your notebook? If it is more then 2 years old and depending on how you use it notebook hard drives can fail from excessive heat in that time period.

Try going into Bios at boot and doing a memory check, I had a similar problem and found that one of the ram sticks had failed.

Good Luck
