Bad sectors are unrepairable, they are a physical fault on the surface of the disk platter. Checkdisk merely tells the operating system to ignore that part of the disk, to not read from or write to it. You need a new disk. If your operating system is still on the old one you may be able to image to the new one with the software disk supplied by the disk maker.
