Test the hard drive with the drive maker's diagnostic. You download this from whomever made the drive ie WD, Seagate, etc. Get the boot or dos version and make the bootable CD or flash drive and boot the system from that media.

Another option is to boot the system with a linux live CD. I use parted magic for all types of hard disk tasks ie secure erase, file recovery, testing drives, etc.
