    If you boot from your OS install disk you can use Disk Utility to check and repair your HD...

    What do you want it to do open your hard drive and see if it still spins? Lol it does basic checks, nothing too advanced, if you want to do advanced then go download 3rd party apps

    It should preform a surface scan to check for bad sectors...that would be about as much as it can do...I last did that with Tech Tool that came with my AppleCare...
