If you have Windows XP then there are some tools already available.

These can be accessed by right clicking on My Computer clicking Manage and selecting Disk Management.

Be careful how you use them though.

You can also download tools from HD manufacturers websites that often completely low level format a hard disk and also test it for errors.
