Windows vista wont start

I have toshiba laptop a205-s5804 with windows vista. When i turn it on it goes to windows error recovery screen. Now i choose launch startup repair (recommended) or start windows normally. I chose launch startup repair and screen goes black i hear clicking noises then the arrow pointer apears with black screen in the background no vista. Is my hard drive dead? Ive tried system recovery disk that came with my laptop and i end up with the same black screen and arrow pointer. Ive unplugged it, removed the battery and the hard drive and plugged everything back up and i get same results. Please help
