Although, some disk errors are irrepairable. So what you have to do is either backup your files and repartition your harddrive (repartition is pretty much saying whipe out everything that is on the harddrive and reinstall the basic things which can be accomplished by putting your OS cd in, and then selecting partition from the selection screen.) Or you can try to deal with it, if its not a major one. But if you deal with it for too long, it will make the drive fail, and you will have to replace it. So for the best decision you probaly want to reformat/repartition.

I download 2 video drivers, is that the problem?

Bad Sectors, fix, remove, How To Repair Disk Errors And Bad Sectors

If you "see" (use) bad sectors. . . Now there's the real problem and there's the point too. . .  A bad sector is normal for 100% of hard drives; however, having the bad sector in use (visable/discoverable) is not normal at all.  The SMART system is supposed to remove the bad sector from the catalog so that it can't be seen or used.  If that doesn't work, then the disk manufacturer's utilities may have a repair option to remove the bad sector, and if the option is missing, then a fill zeros operation and then a FULL format, may allow SMART to kick in and remove the sector.  If that doesn't work, then GRC SpinRite probably will work.  Tolerances:  Removing a sector shrinks storage space by a slight amount.  After repair (removing bad sector from usage catalog), a hard drive should be retired when it has further decreased by bad sectors or if the problem increases.  The point isn't bad sectors.  All brand new hard drives have lots of bad sectors.  There should be no bad sectors in the catalog--if not in catalog its impossible to "see" or use a bad sector, and thus the bad sector is irrelevant.    The point is whether or not there is data stored on the bad sector.

This one has been hashed over a few times before at http://www.astahost....ery-t20336.html. I still recommend SpinRite (http://www.grc.com/spinrite.htm).

UBCD has few Disk repair utilities. You can check UBCD here. Also if you want to check for disk related errors and corrupted windows files then you've to open command prompt and type "sfc /scan". This will ask for XP cd but checks most of the windows file corruption & chkdsk errors.

Other than that you should download your hard drive makers official site for some disk checking and repaid utility. Some hard drive makers do offer disk check utility. These utilities scan your computer online or offline. Some manufacturers which offers such utilities are :

Seagate Seatools

IBM / Hitachi Drive Fitness Test

Maxtor Maxblast 3

Maxtor PowerMax

Western Digital Software & Drivers

Fujitsu Utilities
