Default Dead laptop HDD?

Hey all, I have a Hypersonic GX7 with two 60gig 7200rpm 8mb cache HDDs. One HDD is apps and OS, other is storage. Lately, my computer completely locks up - no mouse movement, no audio, nothing, when Winamp is switching between random songs. I tried to defrag the drive, but it froze at 12% using Diskkeeper. Without touching my storage drive's files, the computer runs perfectly.

Is my second HDD dead? I just want to confirm before I go out and buy another one.
