I would run a hard drive check utility to see if there is a physical problem with the drive.  It sounds like that is the issue.  If you would like to access files from this hard disk, I would take out the hard drive and slave it off of another system.  If you do not want to crack the case you could create a bootable CD to browse the file system as directed here http://www.nu2.nu/pebuilder/.  This will let you copy files to a network location or another disk.  I hate to say it but you will probably not be able to recover the OS if you cannot reinstall or launch the recovery console.

I forgot to mention that most hard drive manufactuers have a free utility you can download from thier website to check if the hard drive is bad.
