Problem comes up when i try to format on CMD, is there a fix?

My drive on my desktop can't continue because it says "your hard drive is going to fail" I try to format it to ntfs but it says this, "Disk-part has encountered an error: The Parameter is incorrect." Is there a fix for this? My computer is a Dell Precision Workstation T3400, And my hard drive is a Seagate 320gb.
Please answer immediately. Thanks in advance.

  1. "your hard drive is going to fail" means your hard drive is going to fail! It most likely has bad sectors. A format will not help. Backup your data and replace the disk.

    Is there any way in saving the disk? Can I fix it if it fails?

    Windows dislikes bad sectors more than 4096kb in size so basically you have to backup all your datas then reload to a new hdd, preferably the same brand and volune.

    You can't save a failing hdd, it's not possible. It could be bad sectors or could even be a broken mounting arm or the needle is swivelling on the spindle.
