✔ Best Answer
Sounds very much like hard drive failure, Alex.

You can't test it while it's installed in the tablet since it has no CD-drive (since Windows won't start, you can only test the drive with a bootable CD).

To be absolutely sure it's failed before buying a new one, ask a friend if they can test it for you by putting your drive into an external USB enclosure. It can then be tested with SeaTools for Windows from here (click "Downloads"):

Or take a chance and just replace the drive without testing it. Testing it, however, would remove any risk of wasting your money.

I agree with phil22's diagnosis, sounds like the hard drive failed. Is it still recognized in the BIOS? If you have an external CD/DVD drive, you can test the HDD by booting off a diagnostics disc.
