do you mean to reformat the offending disk drive?? If so, you would just run fdisk.exe if you are on a PC...

What kind of errors are you having?  Windows errors?  In that case, you would try to reinstall Windows first, and if that doesn't work, then you would want to resort to a clean install.  If you want to do this, make sure you have a startup disk - make this from [Add/Remove Programs] in the Control Panel.  Keep the floppy there and reboot.  You can then type [FORMAT C: /q].  This should quickformat your drive so it doesn't take too long.  After that, type [SYS C:] so you can then boot to your hard drive.  If you have Windows on CD, make sure you have the CD driver from your hard disk before you format!  You will also lose all documents and programs - back these up first.

Good Luck!
