After the DLG results show no issues with the drive and it operates just fine on another system, there may be something wrong with the laptop.
It may be a good idea to contact the laptop's manufacturer Support. Maybe they will be able to help you out.

Hi there YouMaCry,

What happens when you try to try to format it or install OS? Do you get some kind of an error message?
You can try cleaning the drive through Command Prompt before the installation. Check these links out:

Also, you can test the drive with WD's Data Lifeguard Diagnostic tool.
WD's DLG tool for DOS(in case you want to test it when attached as a primary drive and there is no OS on it): http://products.wdc.com/support/kb.ashx?id=emtGs8
WD's DLG tool for Windows(in case you want to test it when attached as a secondary one): http://products.wdc.com/support/kb.ashx?id=fYpWl0
