chkdksk /f from a dos prompt will find and fix them. If you then look in Events you will find a log which says what it found. It won't tell you which particular sectors were faulty but what do you intend to do with that information? It's not as is if is possible to look inside then find and fix them.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

#2 should be all you need but if you want to know the integrity of the drive then run the hard drive utility free from the hard drive mfg. on their web site. Seagate's Seatools are fairly universal and can be used on nearly all drives if you cannot find one for your drive.
If you have more than a few bad sectors or you get any a second time within a year or two, replace the hard drive ASAP because you cannot trust it at that point not to fail.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
