Sorry. I'm just not in a good mood, though I shouldn't take it out on you all.
I didn't want to try the sea tools one because it looked like it was for Seagate drives.
I'll try it out when I can.

PCs do that to all of us at times. Sea Tools can scan most any drive. The last link I posted has HDD diagnostics for almost all brands though.

Ok...
While I was at school, my dad decided to take matters into my own hands. He somehow got the pc running, and got chkdsk running. It apparently finished and repaired the Hard Drive on which multiple errors were found, and I am now running it perfectly fine. I'm not sure if I should do anything at all now. I haven't run any intense programs as of yet, but I soon will just to be sure that it truly is working fine.
