That the hard disk is failing, and you need to back up all of your data from it and get the drive replaced.

You'll need to refer to your manufacturer or manual to check what type of hard disk it needs.

I cannot stress that this is incredibly serious however, backup your data immediately


SMART is a tool that checks for hardware errors. it will detect when there is a Higher power consumption or temperature than usual.


Those things predict a hard drive crash, however it could take months for the drive to fail

(or it could be the next minute).

since it's a hardware problem the drive is going to die on you and you will have to replace it.

Since smart is sometimes triggered by the read heads of the drive that stick to the surface of the drive during boot up (witch results in Higher temp and power rates) you could:


open the laptop
get the drive out


'gently' tap the center a few times
reinsert and check for the smart message again sometimes there is a little dirt on the heads that cause the sticking problem

but, realistically, you're drive is failing and you should back up your data and start shopping for a replacement drive.


You could run the chkdsk disk utility

click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to repair any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive


or an easier way to run the chkdsk utility


click start control panel administrative tools computer management ,disk management right click on your drive select properties click tools you should see click check now click start two boxes


automatically fix files and scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors place then a tick in both boxes then select check now ,start should schedule this task when restart


have no input while the chkdsk utility is in progress any input may further damage your computers operating system and hard drive



Hope this helps.

I would check the hdd is OK and not full of errors. When you press F8 just before boot can you select restore? If you can the restore partition is OK and it will restore itself to factory condition. If you can't, re run your restore discs or use an OS disc and install drivers when you get online.

Your hard drive is dying. It is time to clone it to a good working hard drive. Do it as soon as possible before it completely died.

SMART is the system that monitors the health of a hard disk, in your case  it's close to complete failure. Follow immediately what that warning message says - copy all your data to some DVD's, replace the hd and reinstall.

My toshiba satalite p300 wont work. this is what it says on the screen : SMART failure


The purpose of S.M.A.R.T. is to warn a user or system administrator of impending drive failure while there is still time to take preventative action, such as copying the data to a replacement device. Approximately 64% of failures can be predicted by S.M.A.R.T.[2] Work at Google on over 100,000 drives has shown little overall predictive value of S.M.A.R.T. status as a whole, but suggests that certain sub-categories of information which some S.M.A.R.T. implementations track do correlate with actual failure rates – specifically, in the 60 days following the first scan error on a drive, the drive is, on average. If you can not get the comp to boot, you may need to replace hard drive and reinstall OS and software.
