SMART could also be doing its job and is telling you your Drive is about to or has failed therefore not being mounted. Time for a new drive.

How to Insert Boot Media?


Mostly you wil have to adjust the BIOS of the computer to boot from USB or DVD media.
When booting most computers mention the button(s) to press to get into BIOS:
--A Function key (such as F1, F2, or F3)
--The Esc key
--The Delete key
On some PCs, entering the BIOS may require pressing another key or a combination of keys. Keep your eyes open for an on-screen message that says something like: --'Press F1 to enter setup'
--'BIOS settings: Esc'
--'Setup = Del'
--'System configuration: F2'
If you don't catch it the first time, simply try again. Your computer's documentation may also tell you which key to press.
3. When you know the right key, start the computer again and press the key when the first screen pops up: You may hear a confirmation beep or see a new message. If you timed it correctly, you'll be in the BIOS within a few seconds.

Good luck,
A.Misset

How do I set a Compaq Presario SR1403WM back to Factory settings


Step 1:
While many problems with Compaq Presario computers can be solved by less drastic means, there are times when the best course of action is to set the computer back to its original factory default state. Issues with persistent viruses or spyware often require this drastic step, as do problems with a corrupt operating system. Learning how to restore your computer to its original state is an important troubleshooting tool.

Shut down your computer and restart it. Watch for the Compaq logo, then press the "F1" key to enter setup. Press the right arrow within setup to go to the Boot menu. Press the down arrow to access the "Boot Device Priority" option. Change the first boot device to CD-ROM by pressing the down arrow until "CD-ROM" is displayed. Eject the CD tray and place the recovery CD that came with your computer into the tray. If you do not have a recovery CD, you can order one directly from Hewlett Packard. Shut down and restart the computer. The Presario will automatically boot from the CD and begin the recovery process. Select the operating system your computer shipped with. Many Compaq recovery CDs support multiple operating systems, so be sure to choose the operating system your computer shipped with. Insert the operating system CD when prompted. Enter the license key for the operating system when prompted. The license key is typically found on a small tag located on the top or side of the computer.

Install an operating system


You need to change boot options in BIOS. Press required F key during boot. Look on the screen since Function keys vary with systems. In boot options make optical drive (CD\DVD) 1st. Save and reboot. You should get "Press any key to boot from CD". Note: Some systems have an ad-hoc boot option during startup. Thus eliminating the need for BIOS change.

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.

Enter BIOS, at start up press Delete key every couple of seconds. PC vary, some require pressing the F1 key or F2 and others reqire F10. Once in the BIOS you'll need change your boot order. Again PC's BIOS's vary. Usually Floppy is first, CDROM second and Hd 3'rd. Save Bios and restart. If you boot media is a floppy disk your PC will go there 1'st, than to the CDROM. If boot media still is not seen. Check connectors to the floppy and or CD make sure cables and power connectors are tight.
