People here seem pretty smart, I have a problem with a hard drive, any
suggestions?

I have an ST-3144A 125 meg hard drive that continues to increase in the
number of bad sectors (about 10). When I changed the motherboard when it
was accessed it came back as invalid media. I reformatted and it worked,
somewhat. I could not get DOS 6.0 loaded into it but I could put other
programs on it. When I set up the partition it gave a max size as 58 M
even though it was a 125 M. When I used a surface check on it (scandisk)
it gave continous bad sectors after about checking half the disk

Ideas?
