I don't think your want to run a chkdsk on a failing hard drive. That could make chances of recovering data even harder. Are you trying to recover data or wanting to confirm if the drive is bad. If you have a bootable Parted Magic disk there is the Disk Health/Gsmartcontrol program available from the desktop or you can use a bootable Seatools for DOS disk.

No need to recover data and trying the recovery option does not work, just trying to see first if the disk is repairable. I will try the PM disk health now, get back to you.

Immediately on selecting the disk in Disk Helath utility shows "Basic Health Check failed", that means only option is new HDD needed?

Yes.

 

Edit: It could also mean a problem connection between the MB and drive but that is rare.
