can u see the drive in my computer? Do u have any bootable disc? If not download memtest 86 (.iso file) then burn it to a cd (now u have bootable disc). Go to bios and change boot order like this (1.Fdd 2.Cd drive 3.Hdd) save changes then insert disc and restart the system, if it refuse to boot from cd drive and the drive is listed in bios then the drive is bad.
list the system model #
