when I turn my computer on and it boots up (win7, no more ubuntu for now) the screen stays black and it says "disk error: press any key to restart" I hope my HDD isn't dead.. I'm zeroing everything out on it right now..

Sorry if I'm a bit vague, pulled an all nighter messin' with this thing.

Anyway, is there any hope for my hard drive?
