well i just bought a new hard drive about a week ago. my son got angry or something about something not loading ( wanted to watch spongebob, sigh) and he decided to pound the laptop.
he then screamed "wowwwwwww, it frozeeee! the "touch-mouse isn't moving dadddd, i hate your crappy laptop", ahh jesus. i walked over to see what was wrong, he then shoved it off his lap and it was about a foot fall drop.
i then grabbed the thing and then pressed keys and nothing, the thing really froze. i turned if off and it gave me a black screen saying media test failure. my hdd is now done because this kid got mad because his spongebob wouldn't load. i really don't want to spend anymore money on this thing now. is there a way to fix the hdd? can i open it and try to fix it? or is it done for good?
thanks guys!

if the hard drive is really bad, which it may be, a new one is definetly in order. you can purchase the drive yourself and do all the work which would save the money if you know what your doing. after that, I think I would teach your kid to be more responsible with your stuff, if he cant treat it nicely then I guess he doesnt need to watch spongebob. perhaps find him a dinosaur of a desktop and make him use that for awhile.
