Will not boot past chime and apple logo appearance

Went online with a technician and tried every possibility to boot into mavericks. Tech eventually told me it was not software but hardware problem, possible logic board or hard drive. Am I able to distinguish which it may be.

Is this a good question?

I would create a bootable USB thumb drive using a friends Mac. Then using it try booting up my Mac. You'll need to hold the Option key when you boot to get to the boot up manager to select the USB drive. Was it able to boot up (as USB thumb drives are on the slow side it will take some time to boot so don't panic).

If you are able to get it to boot try running Disk Utility are you able to see your internal drive? If so see if you can repair it.
