Is this a bad HD? and that's why I can't get it working?

Okay, I think I give up .. been working on this for hours and hours; trying to fix my wife's Compaq Presario P2500 laptop, running Windows XP Home edition.
All we've been getting is BSOD.
I cannot even get it to boot up in Safe Mode; and I cannot even get it to boot from the boot CD disk.
(It just keeps reverting to BSOD)
I figure I'll just go ahead and reformat the HD; nothing on it anymore we need; but I cannot even get into a setup or boot menu to do so.
Is my HD bad? Is that the problem?
