Hello for the past month my laptop has been freezing. I have reloaded the operating system and all the drivers and it works fine for a couple day, but then it freezes again. I have repeated this process 7 times and the computer will no longer let me reinstall everything. The error message says somethign like....

SMART failure predicted on hard disk O:Toshiba MK6025GAS-(PM). Warning immediately back up you data and replace osh) your hard disk drive. A faliure may be imminent.
A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. Registry-Error Tech info: xxxStop: 0x00000051, 0x00000004, 0xe101cb00, 0x00000218

Thats as much as I was able to write down before it shut off. Is it a virus? Is it even fixable? If anyone knows what this is and how to fix it i would greatly appreciate it.

Sounds like your hard drive is dying. A hard drive maintenance program, like SpinRite, might be able to fix it. If not, you'll have to replace the hard drive.
