describe what you mean by corrupted. if the hdd is physically damaged then there isn't much (within reason) that you can do. if it is just the partitions that are damaged it shouldn't pose too much of a problem

ok then, sound like you should be able to use your windows disc, presuming you use windows, and reformat then re-install windows from that. if you just stick the disc in and let it boot from the disc it should basically prompt you where to go from there

Hello,

When it told you the HDD was about to fail...was this during POST? (the first few moments when your PC powers on before it boots into an OS)

Also, was it S.M.A.R.T that warned you?
