Like Wojchiech said, most likely hardware. Try to boot a livecd and if that 
won't work either, it's time to yank out hardware. If you have a replacement  
or test machine, put the HDD in there and if the HDD isn't the problem you 
might be able to read it's log files to get hints about what hardware part is 
the problem.
