Here you need to test the HDD with a BIOS Testing Utility

by OH Smeg Moderator In reply to regarding hard drive

Probably the easiest way to do this is with the Ultimate Boot CD available free here


If the drive is OK you can use a Wiping utility like Kill Disc to wipe the HDD


Then reinstall the OS from your Recovery Disc.

If the HDD fails the initial test you need to remove it fit it to another suitable computer and retest. If it still fails the test it's faulty and needs replacing but if it passes the second test the M'Board, or Drive Connector between the M'Board and HDD if there is one is faulty and one of them need replacing.
