    I have the same problem, I installed a brand new HDD same exact size and IDE. Loaded WinXP Home everything was great until I loaded SP3 and then received the same message. I uninstalled SP3 and the message went away. I updated the BIOS and reloaded SP3 and the same message returned. This is only day 5 on the brand new HDD and I did run the diagnostic from HDD manufacturer and detected 0 problems on the HDD. I believe the problem is with SMART and XP SP3. How can I get rid of the SMART in the BIOS?

Sounds like your hard drive is about to pack up. You can disable SMART for your hard drive in your CMOS setup. which will allow you to boot up your pc. I suggest you back-up all your data as soon as possible before the hard drive fails completely.

    Your proposal sounds good but how to back-up all the data.

    You will have to purchase or borrow a second hard drive. This will be easier if it's a USB hard drive that plugs into a USB port on your PC. Once plugged in, simply browse for and select the files and documents you would like to back up, then copy and paste them to the USB hard drive for safer storage. Try to get hold of a third hard drive to replace your failing hard drive. Depending on how much data you need to back up, you may find that a standard USB flash drive will be sufficient for keeping a copy of your data.

1720-SMART Hard Drive detects imminent failure (failing attr:05)


Is your hard drive a Hitachi/IBM? If yes, Compaqs are known for their notorious hatered toward IBM/Hitachi hard drives. It's a compatibility issue over a quarrel Compaq had with Hitachi during the late 1990es. Or you may really be dealing with a dying hard drive. In either case, you'll have to get a new hard drive... or a used one but DO NOT GET A HITACHI. Get a Seagate or Samsung. It would be best if you transfer all your critical data off the hard drive and dont use your computer untill you get a replacement hard drive.

Hard Drive detects immenent failure.


If this is a brand new hard drive from a store return it for a new one. Hard drives have a built in feature called SMART. For some reason the SMART function is reading that there is something very wrong with the drive. If you have more than one hard drive installed on the system make sure SMART is detecting it on the new drive and not the older ones by unplugging the other drives from the motherboard.
