How to test all hardware thoroughly?

Hey guys, hoping you can help me on this one.
My computer has been a little messy lately - crashing, not being able to install operating systems etc.

Is there any thorough way of checking if all your components are in full working order? A system scan of some sort? I used "System Test" with ubuntu (which I also couldn't install, but accessed via CD) and it came back with a result that my hard drive, cpu and memory were all in good nick.
Then I went to "Disks" in Ubuntu and it said there were 34 bad sectors on my drive.

I'd like to know what's going on. When I try to install windows, over half the time it will get as far as Loading Windows Files > Starting windows > and no further. And when it does get into the actual setup of windows, sometimes it will stop at "Expanding windows files." Then when I actually manage to install windows, a few minutes later my computer will freeze causing me to start all over again.

Any ideas?
