What makes you think they are broken? did they both go at the same time?

Laptop wont start. Tried putting them in an old laptop and drives were undescoverable. Anyway so need to install new ones
You can't just plant a HDD or SSD into another machine as an internal drive and necessarily expect them to work.
What happens if you attach each one to another machine using a USB cable or enclosure? A simultaneous failure of an SSD and HDD is about as likely as getting hit by lightning twice in an hour.
As an aside, what OS are we talking about here?

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.

New Harddrives dont come with the Operating System.
You need to Purchase them and Install on the Drives.
Have you ran any other Programs to detect the dodgy drives as you think they are ?
Minitool Partition Wizard can do this and others also.
Slave the drives to another PC with Minitool Installed.

you don't have to purchase the os. if you have a valid license key on the laptop then you can find a windows install disc or an ISO online that matches your version windows that should be installed. then when it asks for the license key type in the key on the laptop. and it should install.
