Most likely you can't...The SMART read stands for Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology. If this test fails the hard drive will likely crash soon so backup what information you can to a CD-R or flash drive.

Start your notebook and start tapping the F2 key. In the diagnostic screen perform the hard disk diagnostic. If the diagnostic reports a hard disk smart test fail, then your hard disk is failing and must be replaced. That is the only way you will be able to return your notebook to useable condition.
If hard disk is ok I suggest you goto HP support Forums at

Please see the Service manual for instructions on how to remove and replace the Hard Drive. Be sure to remove and reinstall the cables for the hard drive if you are on a Desktop Computer.
After reinstalling the hard drive re-run the diagnostics if you receive the same error code Contact Us.
Run the Drive Self Test (DST) from the Utility Partition also known as the 32 bit diagnostics to determine if the previous error has been corrected. If the DST from the Utility Partition does not indicate a failure of the drive, we consider the error to have been corrected and the drive does not need to be replaced.

Hp invent with windows xp pro after restoring to an earlier date says windows cannot start driver corruppted?Did system Diagnostics hard disk test failed test 2 (Comprehensive)...Error: Read Failure


Restoring to an eariler date cannot fix this problem.
If the hard disk diagnostics failed, this could indicate the hard drive is about to fail. The hard disk platter/s most likely has some bad clusters and if any files are located on these bad clusters then you would get a read failure. The number of bad clusters will increase and cause further problems.
Run chkdsk to lock out these bad clusters but this is a temperoary solution and the computer may not be able to relocate the data from the bad sectors to a good sectors.
The fix is to backup your data as soon as possible, then replace the hard drive with a new hard drive and re-install Windows and the Compaq's device drivers.

I get the error code 2000-0146 only when i run the f12 diagnostic


The 2000-0146 error code indicates a read/write failure of the hard drive. There is at least 1 sector that is failing on the drive. While it is working at the moment, the drive is failing and will over time degrade and eventually fail completely. Backup any important data, then replace the drive.

Acer 1642 laptop is giving me much trouble. Was working fine until, fapoot... now i receive a message: SMART failure predicted on hard drive 0:ST6100825A-(PM), please help if you can


A SMART failure means that your hard drive is predicted to fail
soon. Fortunately these warnings are not right 40%-50% of the time. Go to the command prompt (start- run- type in "cmd")
In the prompt type in "chkdsk"
This will run tests on your hard drive and tell if there is anything wrong with it.

Failing attribute id = 05


Your S.M.A.R.T. is reading the attributes on your read only storage.

enter BIOS and under smart=disable
run a good diagnostic on the hard drive to determine any problems.
SMART just tells you of suspected problems or when things are beyond normal limits.
