Seagate bought out Maxtor and their seatools here will work..maybe..
better is to build the UBCD OR BARTPE...they have the tools and the cd's is a bootable live windows CD/DVD
the absolute best is the Ultimate Boot CD for Windows...its more trouble to build but well worth the effort...its also a live cd and has all the different hard drive tools plus memtest and a registry editor and raft of other tools and has malware removal tools built in and it much easier to get rid of the malware when windows is asleep...and so is the malware...you just go in and cut their little throats while they are defenseless...uuh..err...
you anesthetize them and haul them to the bit /byte dump

I have never been able to find a Toshiba hard drive diagnostic, but have found some of the Fujitsu, Samsung, and Hitachi tests labled as Toshiba hard drive diagnostics. We use the Hitachi DFT (Drive Fitness Test) at work - it's easy to use and accurate.

FWIW - the tacktech link is very outdated, that's why I pointed you to the link at my blog which I updated just a couple of days ago. Paragraph 2 has the links to the most common hard drive tests.

I think the patient has died...

This morning even when going into safe mode I got a blue screen. A couple hours later (now), I can log into safemode but as soon as it loads it says "windows explorer has encountered an error and needs to close". I am unable to access anything including start menu, my computer, or any thing else. There are no desktop icons, and if I Ctrl-Alt-Del I'm told that "taskmanager has encountered an error and needs to close"

I thinking the above post suggestiong my hardrive is toast was correct...

Is it time to fly the white flag?

Run the hard drive diagnostic utility to prove that it's dead. If it fails that test, then it's time to purchase a new hard drive.

You can use a DVD instead of a CD - it's just that DVD's are more expensive than CD's (as long as your system can boot from DVD's)
