This means your hard drive is bad. You need to replace the hard drive and then the operating system.

your best bet is to get a convertor connector for the laptop drive to full size IDE drive and put it in a desktop as a 2nd drive to format the laptop drive using the desktop, put it back in the laptop and do a clean install/restore.
