HD reformat??

  Taurus 10:22 20 Jan 2007

Please help me if you can. Can anyone tell me if, when I reformat my hard drive by booting into the Windows CD an reformatting from there if ALL the hard drive is formatted? I believe, from the evidence, that this is not so, am I correct. I am sure that I need to reformat the whole thing as I have recently reformatted THREE times in an attempt to cure an ailing machine with no luck whatsoever. If I am correct and there is an area that is not cleaned (boot sector?)is there a way I can do so, perhaps from DOS. I am running XP Pro. Many thanks
