this sounds like a classic hard drive failure. Unfortunately this likely means that the drive is damaged and data loss is almost a guarantee. There are some recovery companies that can assist however they are very pricy usually being in the range of $1500

If you have a backup or don't care about the information you had on the computer you're in luck! all you need is a new hard drive, a screwdriver, and some kind of install media
you can create one if you don't have one
essentially, all you have to do is install the new drive start off of the new media and follow the instruction, and you'll be up and running in a few hours.
