Question about Computers & Internet
When i on my lap top it comes as smart failure occured in hard disk. Press F1 to continu and if i press F1 it starts
Get to a command prompt during boot by pressing F8 and run chkdsk x: /f/r X being most likely the C drive that has the SMART predictive drive failure, or disable the option in BIOS.

SOURCE: Laptop will not boot up
THis error is telling you that there's a problem with yoru laptop hard driver where the operating system is installed that's why it cannot boot, so the best thing to do here is to replace the hard drive then after that , if you have important file on that old hard drive from your laptop you can buy a hard drive enclosure and make the old hard drive a external drive and that way you should be able to retrive some of your data that is save on it.........
Hope that helps.......

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...
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! :-)
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.

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.

As per experience, SMART Utility will check your HDD for any errors that may occur.
I backed up everything and replaced a new HDD and got rid of the error.
Opened up the problematic HDD and noticed a very light scratch on its "platters".
As for me. Never ignore this warning before something might happen to your HDD and lost important data.

SOURCE: SMART Failure predicted on Hard
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.

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
