Download Seatools for Windows. Do the short test. If it passes do the long test.
If the drive is WD then use their software.
Edit: If both the short and long test pass download memtest+ and run it for at least 6 passes
Download the free edition. You will need to burn the iso to a CD or use Rufus with the iso to create a bootable USB.

If you cannot boot the computer then download UBCD. Burn the iso to a DVD or use Rufus to create a bootable USB flash drive. Link in previous post for Rufus. In order for UBCD to boot you will need to disable SecureBoot and enable Legacy or CSM boot in your UEFI settings. It would be a good idea to disable Fast or QuickBoot if that is also in your UEFI settings.
Boot UBCD and at the menu select Parted Magic. On the desktop select Disk Health. Run the short and long tests. Disk Health is actually Gsmartcontrol.
If both long and short tests pass then boot UBCD and in the Memory section select Memtest86+. You may need to scroll through the first page of memory programs to get to Memtest+
