I have a Macbook, Intel based, purchased in 2007. I suddenly got a grey screen with the sign of death. I tried to reinstall the system (Leopard) from the CD, but the computer does not see the hard disk. I tried disk utility but it does not see the hard disk either.

I understand form several posts that this may mean the disk is dead, or that somehow its formatting/GUID partition table went wrong. However, in most cases the posts were too technical for me to understand what I should do to solve my problem....

Could someone explain me in simple terms how I could test whether the disk is OK, and if it is, how I could have access to it to check its format/partition table?

Thanks a lot for your time and help.
