Default Bad Hard drive?


So i installed a brand new 500gb Maxtor HD. As of the last 2 weeks I started getting a whining noise and found the HD to be doing it. When this occurs i have to reboot, because the computer is non-responsive. ALWAYS when i do, the HD wont be found upon boot up and still making the whining noise...ill have to turn off the power supply then cold boot the machine and that usually fixes the issue. Is this looking to be a HD failure altogether.. is there anyway i can fix this? If so can I back up the state of my OS to another hd and just boot of that? thnx guys.
