Please help me fix my deck.

My deck is terribly uneven from board to board. I can see by looking at it that some of it make be cupped board but other part seem to be the framing. The decking it self is not level board to board. Can i fix this by running a floor sander over it? What is the best remedy for this problem? Thanks to all of you for your help!

Deck Boards

Replace the deck boards. If you use wood, turn the bark side up to minimize cupping. Place the screws within 3/4 in. of the edge of the boards rather than in the center of the boards. If your deck boards are not long enough to reach the entire span, stagger the joints so they do not all fall on the same joist.
