Dead Hard drive?

  1. My friend was shutting down his PC the other day, and didn't feel like waiting for it to shut itself down, so he held the button down. I went there, did what I could, reset bios, boot disk etc etc and I couldn't get it to read windows. It would post up and once it would start loading windows it would restart. I am thinking the hardrive is dead, any second opinions?

    You could also try a Windows repair but in any case I don't believe the hard drive is dead. That would seem to be a very fragile hard drive if such was the case.
