Okay you have seen that message simply because it did not detected any hard-disk. If you know how to open your computer all you have to do is press all the wires in there it maybe dew to loose connection. then try booting it up again be sure it has a system already. If still didn't work out no other solution but to replace the hard disk.

Smart failure predicted on hard disk repair


This means either your hard disk is about to fail or it already has in which case you will need to purchase a new HDD (hard disk drive) and then contact acer to purchase recovery disks or if it is still under warranty then contact for service.

As I understand it, SMART is correct 50-60% of the time...means it's wrong 40-50% of the time.But..You can't take the risk, you have to assume something is wrong with your hard drive. So, i f you have important data there, go to a repair shop and they can save data from your hard drive and replace it, if necessary. If you want to solve it on our own, you need a boot cd with error checking. Any live boot cd with linux does that. Also, there are several live boot cds like Hiren's Boot, with rescue options.

SMART Failure Predicted on Hard Disk


The smart test is useful when giving information about the hardware performance. if you have critical files that are important, the options are, back up files using a external hard drive, a thumb drive, or a cd/dvd disc. The smart test gives a rough prediction of potential failure, the hardware may continue running for months or more, but better to be safe.

Smart Failure Predicted on Hard Disk 4


Are you sure you don't have a usb or other device plugged into your computer. Your main hard drive should be disc 0. Disc 4 is usually a disc further down the line, like an external or something like that. If it indeed the case then you may be having a problem with the boot in your primary drive. Try booting the disc with a windows installation disc. load the dosc and boot, when it says so, hit any key to boot off cd. When windows loads, hit repair this installation. It will reboot when it is ready. If that doesn't take care of it, reload the disc again and try to restore the drive to an earlier time, like a day or two ago. If this doesn't work, you may have to get another hard drive and reload the system. Don't get rod of the other hard drive though because you may still be able to access the personal files off of it as long as it hasn't had a mechanical or electrical problem keeping it from spinning.

This means your hard drive is bad or about to go bad and needs to be replaced. If you can still access the drive, immediately back up anything important to you. You will then need to replace the hard drive. Thanks and please take a moment to rate this solution with a fixya rating, even if the news isn't what you wanted to hear. Thanks! :c)

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.
