Gregrocker gave you a link earlier, but did suggest if you couldn't get the utility to run, the hard drive is more than likely kaput.

HD Diagnostic

I'm also not sure which thing to download. Even once I figure out my HD make each brand has different download links..

You should be able to see the brand in Device Manager.
