Bad Hard Disk Problem

This computer is my teenager's Dell Inspiron laptop. I installed AVG free on it last night and ran a scan and it uncovered and removed a few threats. Afterward, it told me to restart the computer. I did and then got a message that I needed to use Launch Repair to fix whatever problem was causing it not to restart. I ran that and got the message that Launch Repair couldn't fix the problem. It said something about a bad hard disk. What do I do from here? How expensive are those to replace? Thank you!
