Please someone help.
pull the cover and look at the label on the drive. :-) Same models of computers can have multiple different hard drives in them, so the only way to be sure is to pull the cover and have a look.

Also, if you suspect a failed drive I like a program called SPINRITE for testing suspect hard drives. It's been around a long time and is very good. It's not cheap by any means, but you only have to buy it once. I've been using my copy since 1996 and it still is the best thing out there for dealing with not yet dead drives.
