    If there is any way you can access your important data do so A.S.A.P. because you could be looking at a harddrive that is soon to crash (if it already hasn't) and recovering data from a crashed harddrive is costly.

    Slave your harddrive into another system and from that system's main harddrive see if you can access it and a) back up all your data and b) try to do a harddrive diagnostics on it.
