If you have valuable data on the hard drive, don't try reformatting it. Maybe you can get the important stuff off it later. Just hold on to it.

Hard drives are really cheap. Might be worth just putting in a new hard drive instead of spending hours analyzing this. Later you can get some diagnostic software and try to retrieve your data off the failed hard drive.
