I am trying to recover my laptop with the CD. It ran all night and now gives me: Write sector failure 1 drive = 128, sectors 3722527-3722591. What do I do!?

My HDD is a Toshiba MK6021GAS. I tried to run the Hitachi diagnostic test, but its not a Hitachi disk drive. I have this posted in older versions of windows but I am confused what I have here...on the bottom of the laptop it shows XP, but I saw "starting windows 98" yesterday..

Using another PC, download and burn the Ultimate Boot CD. This self-booting CD has several manufacturer's HD diagnostics. It sounds like your HDD is going south ...

I was able to use the ViVARD. I ran a surface test that ran since 11am. It found 9 errors, it said that the log would be kept in file report.txt
What am I supposed to be doing?

If the hard drive is defective, it should be replaced.
