1) I had this same thing occur on a home-built after trying to boot Linux, and it changed something in the BIOS. I reset the BIOS to its prior state, and everything was back to normal.

2) On the OFF CHANCE that it is actually the HDD, one thing to check: is it well-vented? I have a system at home that overheats if I set it against a desk. I kill the power for about 8 hours, repower it, and it comes up fine.
