Check if your hard drive is still in warranty period so you could ask for replacement from the manufacturer. Otherwise, simply buy a new hard drive and move all your data from the old one to the new drive.

SMART always predicts correct hard drive status and probably this time, you need to change it ASAP.

Hope it helps!!

This warningmeans the hard disk will fail sometime in the near future. You need to back upyour data regularly before the hard disk fails or you will lose your data.
When the hard disk fails, you need to replace with a new one and installWindows on the new hard drive to get your computer working again.
If you cannot boot up your computer then -
Remove the hard driveand connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and plug it into a workingcomputer's USB port. If this computer detects it as an external storage deviceand you can open the various folders and files then back up your data.
If not you are in trouble, there are companies that can recover data fromfaulty hard drives BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.

I can not access my computer after imminent failure message


> imminent failure message ... cannot access

Bad luck that the 'imminent' failure was _SO_ soon followed by _complete_ failure.

Buy a new disk-drive. Disconnect the old disk-drive.
Install Windows to the new disk-drive.
Reconnect the old disk-drive, as a 'slave' disk-drive, and hope that you can access the files on it, even though you could no longer 'boot' Windows from it.

Your drive is failing and you should back up any important data you need onto CD/DVD or an external USB device (hard drive/pen drive). The drive may keep working for a while but your system is warning you that it has detected a critical error with the drive and failure is imminent.

How to fixs this


The hard drive is going bad cause it can't read the sectors properly.

Either get a known good workng hard drive in the computer or a brand new one and restore the computer back to factory defaults.
