Hard disk testing stucked at 2% for a compaq presario cq42-304TU
The hard drive must have died, Error code 0303 but how can I still use it back if I don't bring it to a technician to repair it? There are 2 scenarios, The motor has died, I must replace it with a new one The motor hasn't died, I can bypass the bad sector
Are there any software that can boot from dos and repair most of the hard drive problems on a software level? Want to give it a try first? Thanks Jack

You can give SpinRite a try. Hiren's boot CD as well.
Error code 0303 is a self test failure indicating a hardware failure which no software is going to fix. The drive will need to be replaced, hope your data was backed up.
