I don't know your situation over there but my local PC parts/repair shop lets you put your HDD into their Hard drive dock and will tell you if it's corrupted or working for free.
Awesome! What needs to be done in order to test from another pc? I do have a laptop a desktop and an Imac
Unless you have a handy-dandy external Hard Drive dock you'll have to take off side cover on your other desktop PC and connect the HDD, and then enter BIOS and change the boot priority to YOUR hard drive.
If you don't have spare the spare cables, just switch it with your current hard drive. Remember to plug in both the power and the data connections.
And of course you'll want to power off and unplug the PC before you start swapping HDDs in and out.
