Hard Drive unsuccessful, status 79

This question is not answered

I've a Dell Inspiron 1850 and when I switch it on the whole thing freezes a few seconds into loading up the desktop. It does the same in safe mode. Running a diagnostic it seems the problem is with the hard drive and I get an error status 79. Any suggestions?
