If this is your primary hard drive, assuming the system does not boot, how are you confirming that the hard drive is bad?
Go into BIOS set up and see if the drive shows up there at all and what is said about it there.
Make a bootable CD or Flash Drive with Seatools from Seagate (on another computer) and boot to that. If it sees it run the short drive test and see what it says.
Alternately, make a bootable CD, DVD, or Flash Drive of Puppy Linux or other Live linux and see if the drive is accessible there.
If the drive is truly gone or beyond repairable then purchase a new hard drive or SSD Drive and install Windows from scratch:

and create an install Disk for it. Once installed go to the manufacture web site and download the drivers for your machine and install them..... etc.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Did you make any changes to your PC between the time it worked and the time it didn't?

You might want to open it up and check the drive's connections.

Were there any symptoms of the drive going bad before it failed?
