ok so my notebook is dying, when i first turn it on it comes up with a
boot page that says s.m.a.r.t. drive has detected an error on hard
disk - toshiba #######. and it says i should back up the contents of
the hard drive and run a self test in hdd mode.

       when i went into bios and ran a self test it said failure
detected 1-07. im not sure what that means. it will still boot up
(very very slowly) and and i can surf the net but downloads are out of
the question. after a while a blue screen comes up with white font and
it says window has encountered an error and is shutting down and then
im done with my comp, so i dont know if i have a hardware or temp
problem or both.HELP!!!!

So replace the drive and reload it from the backup.  You did make
the backup?

First your NOTEBOOK is NOT dying. Just your hard drive. While you have
functionality, back it up, and then replace the drive.
