I was wiping out my main hard-drive to get ready to sell and this happened. I can't do anything with the bios screen. I took it to an IT guy, he could not reinstall windows on it and he says I may have crashed the hard-drive on it. What are my options?

 

The laptop is a windows 8 Asus laptop/tablet

if it wont install and if the BIOS doesnt recognize it, theres a high chance the drive did go bad, the IT guy is probably right, though he probably should have ran a diagnostic on it. You can always download a diagnostic tool, or just swap out the drive with another one that you know works, and if the other one boots up, then you know the drive is bad. Hard drives on modern laptops arnt usually to hard to replace, usually between 2-4 screws, 2 to remove the cover over the drive and 2 holding the bracket in, then it just slides out and you put the new one in the same way the old one came out.
