Have you ever heard any sounds coming from the hdd before? Something like a clicking sound?

I'm assuming you have access to another computer... Try connecting your hard drive to that computer. If it works, well, then there is more to investigate. If it doesn't work, your hard drive probably died. Time to get a replacement drive.
