I have a Compaq Armada PII 64MB laptop and the hdd has decided to stop working. it makes clicking noises and it won't install win 98

I deleted the partition and created a new one and when i tried to install win 98 it started formatting the drive but stopped half way through the process saying it had found errors. now i have laptop i cant use because the hdd is not working.

can i repair it or do i need to buy a new one?????

Try Drive Fitness test available for download from click here

This software will check the hard drive for problems from a floppy disk so you will be able to use it even if the laptop won`t boot into windows.

Although its mainly intended for IBM and Hitachi hard drives it does work on other makes.
