Question about Samsung SpinPoint P80SD (HD160JJ) 160 GB Hard Drive
Hi, it is just that your computer is telling you that something is possibly wrong with your 3rd hard drive (that is assuming you really have 3 hdds in your pc or your hd is partitioned into 3). By pressing F1 to continue, you are telling the PC to let go of the problem and just boot. If you are not noticing any problem, missing programs, documents or files, then you can probably let it be, if however, the pc at times appears slugish or slow, it maybe that some files are stored in the (probable) defective hd or partition. I would suggest then that you back up all your important files in a CD or DVD. You may have to get the services of a professional computer service personnel to check all your hard drives or partitions, and replace if necessary, re -partition, re-format and re-install OS and applications. Another option that you can try is to run chkdsk /f on all your drive (Start, All Programs, Accessories, Command Prompt) Cheers.

When you say third, is that third in the list; as that could be a dvd or cd drive, unless you have 3 hard drives fitted as a raid setup. if you do have a hard drive problem, check the drives by going to my computer>explore>right click on relevant drive>properties>tools>error checking and let the tool run ;it may ask if you want to run it on next restart, say yes and the drive will be checked.

SOURCE: S.M.A.R.T Command failed
It means that the hard disk SMART monitoring system has detected problems serious enough to warn you of the growing possibility of hard disk failure. Sometimes a drive will last quite awhile after this first notification, but there is a good chance of imminent failure, in minutes, hours, days, or weeks. You should immediately look into installing a replacement drive.
You should immediately copy any important data off the drive, perform full backups, and limit use of it.
If you can install drives yourself, a new hard disk (especially Seagates) usually come with software to clone your existing drive to the new drive. Otherwise, a repair shop will be able to do it for you.
I recommend also purchasing a drive enclosure for your old drive. For whatever life it still has, it will be a good backup of your system.

American Megatrends is telling us our Pri Master Hard disk: S.M.A.R.T. is bad, backup and replace.
By questions and answers from above, is this telling us to replace hard drive?
