If you can get into safe mode go to start - run and type in SFC /scannow.

i cant get it to boot to safe mode.. does it mean my hard drive is broken? coz it is still under warranty maybe i can still let them fix/change my hard drive.

It's a segate drive right.

and you did a diagnostics and it failed if it is under warranty i would have it replaced.

yeah if will need replacing. get a new one if its still under warranty but you may also want to consider just buying another brand as seagates seem to be more prone to dying prematurely than other drives in my experience

in windows right click on the hard disk in my computer and choose properties then the tools tab

choose check for errors

if it says something like do you want to make it scan at next boot then choose YES

Not necessarily. The hard disk could have had magnetic, as opposed to physical damage. Reformatting fixes that (and erases everything, so back up first). Power failures often cause magnetic damage.
