HDD S.M.A.R.T Capability is disable appear on the screen when i try to open my pc


That is not a question......but SMART = Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology

It is a method which can be used to monitor the health of a Hard Drive and in some cases, provide enough advance warning that the user can save all their data and purchase a replacement BEFORE a catastrophic failure of the disk.
*IF* however, your question is how to "enable" S.A.R.T. on your Hard drive, then the answer is that that feature is enabled/disabled in the BIOS; though not all computers have that feature available. Yours does because it says that it is 'disabled', it really should be turned-on as it is, after all, there for your protection.
the make/model of your PC would help be more specific....but PC makers for desktops use a few keys for entering the BIOS on start-up, [Esc], [F1], [F2], [F10]....depends as I said on the make and model of your PC, but you can try them all, one should work.

Once you are in the BIOS, you would look in all of the areas, (usually it is in the first couple though,) for a S.M.A.R.T option....and follow the instructions at the screen bottom to change the value, sometimes the 'plus' or 'minus' or 'u' and 'd' keys sometimes 'page-up' and 'page-down' or others....
Then Exit, don't forget to 'save' when it asks.

When i turn on my laptop a warning notice comes on screen immediately saying smart failure predicted on hard disc 0:ST9160310AS-(PM). Warning immediately back up your data and replace your hard disc drive....


It means exactly what the message says.
The hard drive is going to fail in the near future. I recommend you back up your data before the hard drive fails completely.
When the hard drive fails, replace the hard drive, and use your Compaq recovery disk to install Windows and the device drivers plus your programs to get the laptop working again.

SMART is used to measure your HDD health.It warns you of impending failure of your hard drive. If it goes down, it's a good idea to backup important stuff and prepare to replace the HDD.

S.M.A.R.T is an acronym for Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology systems (SMART) and it's usually built in to most modern ATA and SCSI hard disks.
If you need further assistance, feel free to ask. If this answers or solves your issue, please rate it. Thanks, Joe

Smart test failed on the drive


A smart failure warning is an internal hard disk drive self-diagnostic that will help predict a failure of the hard disk drive. Any system that is displaying a SMART error should immediately have any important data backed up as the drive is not reliable and is impending failure if it hasn't failed already.
Resolution is hard disk drive replacement, Generally around $100 depending on size and speed of replacement HDD

Stuck on the setup menu


Hello,

The error stating failure Disk 0 means your hard drive has died. It sounds like your hard drive crashed and is not seen by your PC, you will need to have it replaced.

Hard disk problem


Smart is a BIOS based harddrive testing utility, it is warning you that the harddrive is about to fail.
You should back up all your personal files as soon as possible and buy a new harddrive.

When booting up my pc...message comes back - "Pri Master Hard Disk: S.M.A.R.T command failed"


Go to the bios screen at startup and disable HDD smart .
typically this option is found under Advanced chipset menu. you enter setup by pressing F1, the 'delete' key or what ever key it says when you first boot the sytem. Go to Hard Disk Management or what ever they call on you cmos/bios/setup and shut it off. This will allow you to transfer what you need to back up.

When you turn the computer on it says SMART Failer predicted on hard disk 0: HTS54108G9SA00-(S1)


S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology) is a diagnostic method originally developed by IBM that at that time referred to as "Predictive Failure Analysis". This technology was developed for IBM mainframe drives to give advanced warning of drive failures. Based on this diagnostic, Compaq announced IntelliSafeTM, which was submitted to the ATA/IDE standards committees and the resulting standard was named S.M.A.R.T.
S.M.A.R.T. analyzes many of the mechanical attributes; over time, some failures can be predicted by detecting if the hard disk drive is moving out of tolerance. While the S.M.A.R.T. technology can detect upcoming issues, not all hard drive failures are predictable.


All this means on most modern drives is the hard drive is coming close to the maximum tolerances

I usually switch off in the bios smart monitoring.

This system is trying to predict a possible failure, which may or may not occur..
