Question about ASUS P4S800D-X Motherboard
Im trying to put in a new 40g hard drive but I keep getting this message: Master hard Disk : S.M.A.R.T. Command failed. What should I do when this message comes up
It is possible that your hard drive is not S.M.A.R.T. capable, which simply means that you most likely wont be forewarned when your hard drive is about to fail. To prevent this S.M.A.R.T. message, check in your CMOS setup(by pressing DEL usually) when your PC starts up. Go through the list of BIOS settings until you find a setting to enable/disable S.M.A.R.T for hard drives. This is most likely enabled for your board. If so, disable the S.M.A.R.T. feature, then save these settings and restart your pc.
For any clarification or further assistance, please don't hesitate to post another message.
Hope this sorts your problem.

Tips for a great answer:
To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or
a operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from
it. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white
letters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice the percentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run to completion. Then reboot machine.
If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows. Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs.
In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair when the options appear.
In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recovery console and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.
