Start off by removing the HDD and refitting it. It is just possible that the Connectors have got dirty and are no longer making a clean connection though if that was the case I would have expected bigger problems previously.

As for what to do from here you don't have much choice you can buy and have fitted a New HDD and Optical Drive and in the meantime contact Sony for a Recovery Disc for this system.

Or you can buy a new NB and use that. You may be able to recover your Data off the Old HDD but then again you will most likely not.

As for all NB users they should be using a Cool Pad like the one shown here

To help keep the NB cool and stop it sucking in Dust and other airborne gunk and blocking the cooling vents. These also help to keep the HDD in these units cool so that they last longer.
