Hi ingilaz, and welcome to BleepingComputer.
Have you tried booting from a bootable CD? If you can boot from the CD then you either have a problem with the OS or a hdd problem. You can narrow this down by downloading the diagnostic tool from the manufacturer of the drive and booting from this to run the test. For either of these you may have to change the boot order in the BIOS so that the CD-ROM is the first item seen.
Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life. You never know when one will leave you.
