    Physical hard drive error.

    Try removing the harddrive fully (detaching all cables: data and power)
    Remove power fully to computer
    Pushing in power button on computer for 30 secs (dispersing all internal voltage)
    Re-attaching hard drive cables
    Re-plug in power
    Turn back on
    If it works
    Backup! (Hmm I'm not going to expand on this, but I should)
