It's available here but you do need to know who made the HDD before proceeding here

If the HDD fails the Makers Test you need to remove it and fit just the HDD to a different computer and test again. If it still fails the HDD is dead and needs to be replaced. But if ti passes the second test either the Data Lead to the HDD, the M'Board or Power Supply needs replacing. You can check the Data Lead by fitting it to the HDD and the Second Computers M'Board and test again with the HDD Makers Testing Utility. If it fails now replace the HDD.

If it still passes change the Power Supply in the original Computer with a Known Good One and retest the unit. If it still fails the M'Board is shot and needs replacing.
