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.

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.

Smart failure predicted on disk and cannot load Vista after format due to projected failure. Now it is happening again on a different HDD. Can both HDD's be ready to fail?


It is entirely possible, but not terribly likely, to have two drives fail in a row. I have had several of my drives make it more than 6 years, and I've seen students come in with dead hard drives they day they bought their machines.

Smart failure predicted on hard disk, acer aspire 5570 laptop


This warning is to let you know the hard drive may fail sometime in the near future so you should backup your data frequently.
When the hard drive eventually fails, you can replace the hard drive, re-install Windows, your programs and data.

ACER SMART failure


SMART means self monitoring and reporting tool, this is the option which performs certain test for the status of hard disk health, if its coming it means condition of your hard disk is not good, its better if you immediately back up your data and replace it, by the way you can also disable this warning through the bios, just disable the smart feature in hard disk

Hard disk problem


Smart is a BIOS based harddrive testing utility, it is warning you that the harddrive is about to fail.
You should back up all your personal files as soon as possible and buy a new harddrive.

When you turn the computer on it says SMART Failer predicted on hard disk 0: HTS54108G9SA00-(S1)


S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology) is a diagnostic method originally developed by IBM that at that time referred to as "Predictive Failure Analysis". This technology was developed for IBM mainframe drives to give advanced warning of drive failures. Based on this diagnostic, Compaq announced IntelliSafeTM, which was submitted to the ATA/IDE standards committees and the resulting standard was named S.M.A.R.T.
S.M.A.R.T. analyzes many of the mechanical attributes; over time, some failures can be predicted by detecting if the hard disk drive is moving out of tolerance. While the S.M.A.R.T. technology can detect upcoming issues, not all hard drive failures are predictable.


All this means on most modern drives is the hard drive is coming close to the maximum tolerances

I usually switch off in the bios smart monitoring.

This system is trying to predict a possible failure, which may or may not occur..
