Almost every brand of hard drive has it's own testing tool. Check the website of the manufacturer of the drive so you can get the appropriate tool.

Seagate Seatools is very good. Its not specific to Seagate HDD either, I have used it on WD, Samsung and Hitachi drives.

There is a Windows installer available downloadable from

When intstalled you can run various tests. I find that the short generic followed by the long generic tends to highlight the majority of issues.
