✔ Best Answer
Test the hard drive for failure using the Hitach Drive Fitness Test bootable CD.
Download the CD Image from here: http://www2.hgst.com/hdd/support/do...

You can create the CD from the downloaded ISO file with IMGBurn:
http://www.filehippo.com/download_i...

Then boot your laptop from that CD and choose "ATA Support Only".
Drive Fitness Test will then open.

Choose the "Advanced test" to test the hard drive.
