SMART stands for Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology.

If you want lots of details on what it is, and does, take a look at this link:

It is highly unlikely that you will be able to fix this since it's a hardware problem on the hard drive. The drive may last for years or it may die tomorrow. At a minimum I would back up everything you care about on a regular basis.

If you found this information helpful I would appreciate it if you would rate this solution. I hate to beg, but over half of the solutions I've posted have no feedback. I'm not paid for this I'm just trying to help.

SOURCE: SMART Failure Predicted on Hard Disk 4: Hitachi-(S1)-ToshibLaptop

that will be expensive. i just went to microcenter and asked them, they said many hundreds of dollars just to look at it, then like 1600 for the cheapest recovery...

I would

1. stop using it immediately. (after an error like that, you may have only minutes of life left on it)
2. get a 25 dollar external enclosure to put the drive into. If it's IDE make sure you get an IDE enclosure, if SATA, get SATA compat. external enclosure.
3. get another computer, o rgo to a friends house, etc, and try to read your data on their computer after plugging in your hard drive inside the external enclosure.
4. if you can see it, rush like mad to copy the data thats important to your friends computer before the drive is 100% dead.

microcenter and similar stores have external hard drives at $129 dollars for a terabyte. BUY ONE! :-)

Good luck

PS: rumors go around that if you freeze the hard drive in your freezer for an hour, it helps get the data off, dont know if this is in fact true. Once the drive is dead, it's dead. You cant do much about it unless youre willing to part with a lot of money.

SOURCE: SMART FAILLURE PREDICTED ON HARD DISK O:WDC

Well this error message means that the automatic drive checking software that runs all the time has detected that the drive is failing, either the electronics or the media. You need to backup any data to a DVD or external drive. The press F1, is so you can continue on and do so. You can burn/copy the data to DVD or copy to a USB hard Drive. Then you will need to get a new drive and reinstall your Operating System & data again.

There is no way to fix. A SMART failure means that your hard disk's failure is imminent. Backup all your information to an external hard disk or create a disk image, get a new hard drive/send it for servicing, and restore it back.

Do what it says and backup immediately.

  1. After everything is backed up, download and run Speedfan.
  2. then open "S.M.A.R.T" data for your drive and click "Perform an in-depth online analysis of this hard disk"

3. I will send the diagnostic data(it is safe as does not contain any private info) to a hddstatus.com webpage and open analysis result.
4. Paste the permalink from results page here. It is on the bottom of page and reads "this".

Then we could see what exactly is about to fail but most likely you will need a new drive(SSD prefered) or a new laptop. Depending on laptop specification replacing HDD with SSD drive could inject a new life in this rather old laptop.

Save all of your files to an external storage device (Flash Stick or desktop drive) and the replace the hard drive. Do it quickly, because there is no time period given before it fails. And it will.

SMART is used to measure your HDD health.It warns you of impending failure of your hard drive. If it goes down, it's a good idea to backup important stuff and prepare to replace the HDD.

S.M.A.R.T is an acronym for Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology systems (SMART) and it's usually built in to most modern ATA and SCSI hard disks.
If you need further assistance, feel free to ask. If this answers or solves your issue, please rate it. Thanks, Joe

DELL Studio 1737, last week my computer shut down and now all I have is a message that states the following....SMART Failure Predicted on hard disk 0: WDC WD3200BEVT-75ZCT2-(S1)......WARNING: Immediately...


It sounds like the failure message is saying your hard drive is about to lose sector 0. But if you press F1 it will let you continue your boot and then you can backup your computer.

You can just do the system backup to a set of DVD's as instructed by the dell restore disk creator program. I have done this for my mothers home pc and works pretty well. Then when the HD does finally fail you can replace it and reload your system with the newly made restore disks.

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

here's what you should do.. first, as mentioned, you should backup all your important files in another drive or an optical drive... once you have done it, format your hard drive and perform scans to check the error.. during scan, you will see errors on it and you may not be able to fix it since the drive is internally damaged.. purchase a new one ok? just make sure to backup all your files..
