Default Inspiron HD Prob Help, im gettin angry!!!

Hi, I recently acquired a Dell Inspiron 8600. I reinstalled Windows XP Pro on it right when i got it. The machine ran wonderfully until about 2 hours ago when i got a short blue screen o death (came and went too fast and couldnt read it)when the laptop rebooted i got a "Disk read error has occured" I ran the dell Diagnostics think and got ths
DST Short Status Test
status byte 89
From what i have seen this is caused by bad sectors. Is there any wat that i can create 2 partitions not including the bad sectors??? And is there any ZeroFill utility for fujutsu HD's

And another thing, there are 2 lines going vertically on the laptop lcd one is blue and the other a purply pink color. Any info on that?

Thanks Guys,
Sean Wichers
