Help: Dead T60? - Stuck at "Welcome Powering Up"

My unmodded DTV T60 started acting up a bit a couple of weeks ago when it rebooted itsself once or twice without warning. The first time it happened, I came home to a gray screen that said CANNOT BOOT KERNEL (and have seen that screen once or twice since). Unplugging it did the trick though and it came right back up. After that though, I noticed a couple of recorded shows getting a little hiccup now and then and finally late last week I got a couple of those hiccups and it rebboted after freezing the playback for a few seconds. Usually, a restart or two would get it back up and working (it would usually get stuck on the "Welcome Powering Up" screen once or twice before it would boot though), but then the reboots started coming every few hours or so. When I got home yesterday after being gone for a couple of days it was back stuck at the "Welcome Powering Up" screen and no amount of rebooting seems to get it back up (in fact, I can hear the HD making funny sounds when I power up the unit.

I expect that it's probably a HD problem, but I though I'd look for some expert opinion on here before I dug in and tried to replace it. I was planning on upgrading the drive to a couple of Samsung 160's anyway, but I don't wanna bother messing with it if it's more likely to be a MB problem or something.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Yes, sounds like the drive I'm afraid.
