How to recover a hard disk ?

Specs: Windows XP
Hy a friend of mine has sony whatever laptop. I tried to install windows on it cuse it wasn't any kind. The problem appeared when at partition listing i deleted all the partitions and recreated them. After i went to format the main partition C which just stopped at 40% and sad windows is unable to format the partition. I restarted and most of the space was missing. It showed only 8gb unpartitioned space from 60gb and even that 8 gb was unusable because it won't let me create a partition.

Oh i'm sorry i forgot something. I know it's 60 GB because the bios recognize it. What can be the problem ? I tried using DOS but it wont list any hard disk drive. Windows 7 setup freezes if i hit create partition. And windows XP i explained above. What can i do ?

You should obtain the diagnostic software from the HD manufacturer. But I think it highly likely that the drive is bad and will need to be replaced.
