HDD failure on its way? disk scan report inside

Hello everyone,
I'm using a Toshiba Satellite laptop that I purchased in December 2010 and I received a few messages today telling me that "Windows detected a hard disk problem" and advising me to backup everything and contact the manufacturer. The HDD is a Toshiba MK5065GSXN. I'm using Windows 7 64bit. I performed a disk scan and am hoping that someone can help me interpret the results (the steps I followed were taken from this thread:

Thank you very much for any help or advice you can give!

Checkdisk cleaned up the file system that had some entries that pointed nowhere, but did not find any bad sectors on the drive. That is good news.

The next thing to try is a HDD diagnostic program that can be booted from a CD or USB stick so it can run outside of the OS. Toshiba does not offer one but most folks use the Hitachi Drive Fitness Test instead.

(Note: Toshiba HDDs are usually manufactured by Fujitsu. Fujitsu does have a diagnostic but it only boots from floppy disk - the last time I checked)

Thank you very much for your response!
Edit: I had a question about the diskette that it said I would need to create, but then I noticed the publication date in the instructions. I'll try it from a USB stick!
