I have an ASUS laptop with a Toshiba Hard drive. I have already had to remove it and run a diagmostic and repair on it via Windows 7 because my computer crashed when I updated by graphics driver and then wouldn't boot for nothin.
So yeah, who makes the best hard drive?

Based on your question, it's no guarantee that the hdd failed unless you test it with a tool. Maybe run the SMART tests in bios or uefi. If it failed after video driver update, that could be the cause. Try booting in safe mode and uninstall the driver.
If it is the drive that failed, best brand depends on the model. Even the vendors that were known for high quality started selling crappy value drives that don't last, several years ago, including Western Digital and Seagate. In my experience, the smaller sized drives tend to last longer, while the cheap drives with large capacity tend to be crap.0
