Dell Inspiron 1764 Hard drive Failure

This question is not answered

Hi, Can any one point me in the right direction as to what to do with a hard drive failure in my Dell inspiron notebook computer. It won't boot up., all it does is get stuck at the Windows 7 startup blue screen. I did a diagnostics test and came up with the error code 2000-0146. I read somewhere on this forum that its an hard drive failure. I made a backup with data safe to an usb drive but can't get it to work. I had this notebook for a year and I called dell tech support for  help, They won't help unless I pay them a fee. All, I have is an Dell drivers and utilities dvd that came with the computer. But no copy of windows 7. What should I do in this situation? Thanks!
