Bad BLocks on Hard disk...

My new Seagate Barachuda 80 GB hard disk which was bought very recently conked up with few bad blocks getting created...

Now, I'm facing loads of problems with my linux. Few applications die abruptly...

Linux checks for drive integrity on start up...

says '2.1% non-contigious' and mesgs like ' 4 Orphan Inodes detected'...

Is this a serious problem?

Is there a way by which I can restore it back? and get rid of Bad blocks?
