Can you provide more information about the system? Do you know what brand of hard drive is installed? Typically you can find this information in the BIOS by pressing the Del or F2 key when booting. If you can get the brand, we can point you in the direction of some hardware diagnostic utilities to verify failure.

But the make of my laptop is Packard Bell if that helps.
And it's an Easynote TJ64.

Run hard drive diagnostics: http://www.tacktech....ay.cfm?ttid=287
Make sure, you select tool, which is appropriate for the brand of your hard drive. I would suggest the SeaTools CD ISO since it seems to work with most brands of HD's.
Depending on the program, it'll create bootable floppy, or bootable CD.
If downloaded file is of .iso type, use ImgBurn: http://www.imgburn.com/ to burn .iso file to a CD (select "Write image file to disc" option), and make the CD bootable.
NOTE. If your hard drive is made by Toshiba, unfortunately, you're out of luck, because Toshiba doesn't provide any diagnostic tool.
Thanks to Broni for the instructions

Help me anyone?
Sorry about that, I was out of town for a week for work and didn't have the time to check in on your question. I see that rshaffer61 was able to get you moving.
