I AM USING DELL INSPIRON DUAL CORE, WITH 320GB HARD DRIVE

RECENTLY I FACED A PROBLEM WITH MY HARD DRIVE. THE LAPTOP IS NOT STARTING UP.NOR THE WINDOW IS INSTALLING. IT STUCKS ON (SETUP IS STARTING). I CHECKED IT WITH THREE DIFFERENT WINDOW CD'S. ON TAKING DIAGNOSTICS TESTS, IT SHOWS ERROR IN HARD DRIVE. THE ERROR IS FOLLOWING:

HARD DRIVE 0-DST SHORT TEST
TEST RESULTS: FAIL
ERROR CODE 2000-0142
VALIDATION 43542
MSG: HARD DRIVE 0 - S/N WD-WX41EA1MTT11, SELF TEST UNSUCCESSFUL. STATUS = 7

IS THERE ANY CHANCES OF DISK REPAIR OR I HAVE TO BUY NEW ONE.



PLZZZ HELP ME AND GIVE YOUR USEFUL SUGGESTIONS.

Looks like it's time for a new HD. Once installed, you can slave the old HD to see if you can salvage any files you want to save.
