goto the manufactors web site and look for a diagnostic tool

Just to be certain...
Have you run chkdsk /r and then defragged the drive before running Partition Magic?

chkdsk /f would only repair known problems, it won't scan for bad sectors.
By using the /r it scans for bad sectors AND repairs errors.
