I am using a T410 laptop and it fails to load windows. It wil hang after the ThinkVantage start up page - stopping at a black screen with a blinking underscore (the one normally seen before the windows start-up page)
I have done the short SMART self-test with the following result
Error: Communication with device failed.
Extended SMART self-test = failed.
Failure accessing sector: (LBA 000000000000h)
What should I do now? Is my HD dead?

(You can probably salvage the data on your old hard drive as the previous poster mentioned - hook it into a USB enclosure and give it a try. If that doesn't work...savage away!)
I suppose you could also obtain SpinRite, which should stand a better chance to recover the information if the drive is seriously damaged.
