I keep receiving warnings that the failure of my HDD is imminent on my Toshiba P505 which is about 6 months old. It also advises to create Recovery Discs which I have done. It also advises that if it fails that I should take it to a service centre for repair or replacement of the HDD. It is still working normally though since the warnings commenced several days ago. Do you think that it is going to crash or is sending a false message as it appears to be functioning normally. Thanks, Terry.

Assuming your machine is still on warranty I would think it would be covered under warranty. Call Toshiba Computer Tech. Support and they'll let you know I'm sure. Have your laptops Serial Number handy when you call.
Make sure you have all your data backed up, keep it backed up. I'd move all your documents, music, etc, everything to an external hard drive, and only open, edit, and save all your user files on the external hard drive. If they're important to you, you may want backup, or export, your Favorites from Internet Explorer, and/or Bookmarks from Mozilla Firefox, or whatever browser you use, also to the external drive.

Just curious-did the new HDD solve the problem? I'm having the same problem but thinking it is actually a Windows error so I'm trying to use recovery to solve it...it's worth a shot! Got nothing to lose!
