You don't give a lot to go on here. If your disk has failed, you will need to replace it. Are you sure the disk has failed? You may want to take a few steps to determine if the disk is really at fault, maybe something has happened to corrupt the boot sector and though the disk is fine, it cannot be read. There are restore utilities available on the internet to fix the boot sector of the corrupt drive. And you may even have such on the restore disk that came with the computer.

If you are talking about fixing it, forget that. You really cannot fix a hard drive if it fails. To get the old data off is almost impossible for anyone who isn't a pro. All you can do is to replace the hard drive, and from now on, back up your drive to an outside sourse, like a usb hard drive. Then if it should fail, you at least have your data

I have a D865perl MB some times for no reason my computer shuts down. It is a pain to restart, i have to turn it on and off atleast 20 times


Hi,
That looks a hardisk failure.
Set the BiOS to "max. default operation", save upon exit. If you still got the same problem replace the HARDiSK.
Try to replace the hardisk and install your favorite OS.

Hope that helps!

Have a compact persiro f700 and am getting a message that states that SMART disk failure and windows will not load and cannot boot computer into safe mode Please Advise on what to do next?????


Hi,
You could open the bios set up to check the hardisk and memory card, see if it is being read by the board.
Try to set your boot sequence to "default option" and save the changes. reboot again afterwards.
If there is a rebooting, but still can not read the hardisk, it means, that is a hardware breakdown, mainly the hardisk itself. Try to replace the HD( hardisk) if you have any spare ones, just to check the system.

Your local computer shop can assess it and tell you what causes the problem. we are just advising you if you could repair it by yourself and my pointers to what you are going to repair in your laptop.
Hope that helps you out.
Thanks for using FixYa!

I got my motherboard changed in October and my computer won't boot up "disk boot failure 0" could I have the same problem again? I don't have a disk - dell dimension C521


The motherboard is not the problem.
Your hardisk is the problem.
See if your hardisk is detected during boot up procedure.
If it does... Run again your Windows XP CD installer and repair your operating system.
Having "Disk Boot Failure" error means the boot system of you operating system is corrupted.
If your hardisk is not detected... you better check if the power supply connector on your hardisk is secured and not loose..
If still not detected.. your hardisk crashed and need to be replace.

Software problem


SMART is the system that monitors the health of a hard disk, in your case  it's close to complete failure. Follow immediately what that warning message says - copy all your data to some DVD's, replace the hd and reinstall.

Hardisk cleaned why?


this may be a hdd physical failure, best to check this would be to connect disk to another computer for a minute and run full HDTACH tests, if it's not damaged, then boot record is damaged, and Partition magic or similar program is needed to delete partition and re-create it
