Download a copy of the diagnostic tools for your hard drive from it's manufacturer's website. If you can get into Windows you can run the Windows tool that they have. If not, then you'll have to make a bootable disk to run the tools from - the instructions are commonly on the same page as the tool.
When you formatted and reinstalled the OS, did you reinstall all the drivers for the system? To check, go to Start and type in "devmgmt.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter. Look for any devices with red x's or yellow !'s. Let us know what you find.
If there are missing drivers, please provide the exact make and model of your system so that we can try to locate the drivers.
