Vespa, if you have a toshiba drive, why are you looking at seagate and western digital? I'm a little confused (my normal state).

Did you try running the toshiba diagnostic? Is that what failed?

There is no Toshiba diagnostic!! Google it Lemur.

The Toshiba website allows you to download the Fujitsu tools, which, Vespa, you told me won't work.

Well I decided I might as well backup all my important stuff and reinstall everything from the ground up. That should fix things right?

Not a bad option. For my own computers, the solution to any error that looks like it might take more than an hour to fix is a clean install of windows.

so how would I go about to make a clean install then? I'm just winging my way through this would require a step by step guide. Also, I upgraded from windows vista, does that mean I would have to install vista then upgrade again?

No, you could do a clean install with an upgrade disk. There's even a tutorial on it that explains how better than I can.
