Windows 7: A Bad Harddrive?

A Bad Harddrive?

Well.. my laptop did this thing where it would go really slow..then crash.. I took it to Star-Tech in the mall..and they looked at it and said it was a bad hard-drive sector or something like that? I was wondering, is there anyway to get around that other than me re-installing windows every-time it crashed? I don't have the money to get a new hard-drive or anything either, plus I feel like Star-Tech is a rip off and just wants my money. -Thanks, Kyle!

Use the drop down window to select windows 7 32bit.
You should install the items listed under the driver tab there.

OK, I need to install all of them? And I think I have Windows 7 64 bit, will it make a difference?
