Question about Western Digital Computers & Internet
This warning given from your SMART built into your hard drive. It is to be taken VERY seriously. You need to backup all your important data, Everything in My Documents, Pictures, Music etc. as soon as possible to another drive, either internal or external. This is a warning the drive WILL FAIL SOON. If you plane on cloning everything to another hard drive, do the backup FIRST because cloning is ******* the bad drive and can cause the failure to happen sooner. Good luck. Hope this helps..

There is a big problem with newer conponents and Win XP versions prior to SP2. Especially with newer motherboards.
You have to make a bootable SP2 disk if you don't already have one. To do this use the slipstream proceedure specified on the Ms website. Many other websites describe the process with easier language.
Slipstreaming is a common practice now. Essentially, you copy your original install disk to the c: drive then download SP2 to C: drive then download the slipstream utility from MS. Running the slipstream utility then inserts the proper drivers (ide and HD drivers too) into the licensed copy you have. You then create a bootable disk from the slipstreamed files you have.
This approach is resolving alot of blue STOP errors and SMART errors.
ALSO, you want to make sure you are installing any drivers provided by the MB manufacturer AND Drive maker.
