You need to go into the BIOS (by pressing either F1 or F2 or DEL when you first turn on your computer; it should tell you which one to press to go into system settings or BIOS) and disable the floppy drive. Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya. :c)

Every time I am starting the PC, it's showing the message S.M.A.R.T Command failed , press F4 to resume. It started after setting segate 80 GB HDD as Primary with Win-XP loaded and Samsung 40GB as...

Before you deal with SMART let me explain what it is and what is the function of SMART:-SMART stands for Self Monitoring And Repair/Reporting Technology
It's not that useful, and I've never seen a Smart error fix itself. It works as a helping tools for drive. it detect the drive problem.

Now Follow This Steps:-Enter to your bios by pressing DEL or F2 or it may F9 or F10 key it depends on the motherboard & disable the SMART drive feature, you don't need it. It's a leftover from the past for the most part.

If you can't find SMART function in your BIOS, just try this-- You must enable the 'advanced settings' first, usually by pressing ctrl&F1 when in the main BIOS screen. Then if you go into standard BIOS settings (or something like that), the option for SMART to be enabled should be there

Press f4 to resume

u need to go into bios setup.this can be done by pressing del button on ur keybadr while booting is goin on. some time the key to be pressed will be F10 or F1 instead of del key.
There will be an option as stop booting on error. disabl;e that..n it ll be fine.. btw to find out the error u'l have to specyfy each n every settings in ur bios.So its better u to ask for a person who knows these things to ur home.. Else u can do by exploruing these things urself.It ll be fun..i would prefer this..

"primary master harddisk S.M.A.R.T Command failed , press F4 to resume"

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?

Press F4


"always message to press F4 at the time of star up". this problem happen when CMOS detect any error. is also happen if CMOS battery fail (Chack sum error).

to solve this problem at first check CMOS battery (it voltage less then 3V or not) if it bad then replace it. u can buy this battery form any computer accessories shope.

or if u not connect floppy drive, and controller enable. if u desable floppy drive contoller from CMOS setup (in intel mother board is show BIOS setup) then this problem solved.

if you only want to get rid of the F4 option then go to setup utility and on select HALT ON NO ERRORS.

it will fix the problem of F4 if the drive works fine.
