Look into Ultimate Boot Disk 4 Windows. I think it has something that will let you do a HDD check.

Don't take life too seriously -- no one gets out alive. Plus, who wants to arrive to the hereafter in pristine condition wearing a suit and tie?
I want to slide in sideways, worn out, used up, hair a mess, clothes tattered, & screaming, "Whooo! What a ride!"

Why the ultimate boot cd for windows? Personally i'd just use good old UBCD. It's just one of these things that everyone should have a copy of lying around somewhere!
