To see if your problem is hardware related or software/registry related see if you can boot up from a Bootable CD or DVD
eg a Windows disk, your Windows recovery disk etc

I wouldn't say that the drive is defective just yet, this is a common issue that can be solved with a little registry editing.
Click Start> type "regedit" in the search box and hit enter (User Account control may pop up)> on the left pane expand HKEY_Local_Machine>expand System> expand current control set > expand control > expand class > Then find {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} (It will be the first 4D in the section. Click on it and under the "Name" column, find and delete any and all that say UpperFilter or LowerFilter. Then click File then exit. Reboot the computer and see if it worked.
