I use windows a lot for gaming and i use bootcamp to install windows on it. I've taken windows off many times a put it back on countless times. My hard drive must be screwed up in some way, but im not sure whats up because i can no longer repair my hard drive when i need to put windows back on. What do u guys think is wrong. i think it's my hard drive.

You haven't provided nearly enough information. For instance exactly what happens when you try to use BootCamp?

My guess, this thread will answer your question.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

Looks like you are headed for a new hard drive. DiskWarrior may be worth a go but at $100 it is cheaper to put a new hard drive in.
