Not sure if hard drive is broken
I'm trying to fix my mates laptop cause it just went to a black screen when supposed to boot OS from Hard drive. I tried to format the hard drive with Windows 7 cd, but I went up with the installation stuck at 0% and got an Error: 0x80070057.
I am afraid that the hard drive is broken, because I have read about the "Click of Death", and the hard drive makes this low "ticking" sound repeatetly.
But is it possible that the hard drive is broken when I am able to see the partitions in the windows installation?
Or is it possible to check wether it is broken or working?
