Can someone advise me on what I can do to repair bad sectors? Everytime I try to load windows, scandisk stops at certain bed sectors and I get a message telling me that scandisk cannot repair the bad sector. Then it shuts down my computer. Just before it shuts down, it says it I must reinstall windows. How can I install a new windows if I can't get the old one to completely finish loading? Is there a way to delete the whole thing and start all over? It seems that the only way I am able to communicate with my pc is through the DOS prompt. Please help! Thanks so much!

Kind regards,
