Question about Computers & Internet
I've got a HP mini 1000 netbook, the hard drive s.m.a.r.t. status became BAD, and can't boot from hard drive, I tried to connect an external DVD and boot from it with a Linux live disc, try to back up some import file, when I double click the hard drive icon after booting, I've got "Hard drive has the problem, examine", sometimes I can see one or two partitions and sometimes don't, the partitions I can see is not the one with the important data, Is there any way so I can back up the data. Thanks in advance.

Try this -
Remove the hard drive from the laptop and connect it to the USB hard drive adapter then connect it to a working computer's USB port. This computer will see the USB hard drive adapter and hard drive as an external storage device, you can then open the folders and files on the hard drive and copy the data files to the computer and to backup your files. If it doesn't work then your luck has run out. There are companies that can recover data from faulty drives BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.

You can definitely get another one, as long as it's compatible with your system...get the original specs from dell, then search online at western digital, tiger direct, etc. etc.Many online sites will have recommendations for your system.
Please consult links here and here
You may want to run chkdsk to see what's up with it...

You have a sick laptop, could be simply a faulty power adapter to a faulty motherboard. The Evo is old and probably not worth fixing, better to put your money towards a new laptop.
There is a way to retrieve data from your hard drive provided it is not faulty.
Remove the hard drive from the laptop and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter. Insert the adapter into a working computer's USB port and the computer will see this as an external hard drive. You can then open the folders and view your files. Copy the various folders and files you require to a USB memory stick and/or burn these to a CD etc.
It pays to backup your data regurarly because if the hard disk fails and this can happen unexpectedly, you will lose your data.
If the hard drive is faulty, there are companies that can retrieve data from faulty hard drivers, but it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.

You cannot use another laptop as an external drive.
I would not try a re-install just yet though. The bios will try to boot from your selected device and a failure to boot usually gives an error message of some sort. I would first try to get a boot CD/DVD that will let you boot up and check the hard drive for errors. If you have a bootable windows CD/DVD this may allow you to carry out diagnostics before you resort to full re-install.

you need to set up the boot sequence on BIOS..for example..if you will use cd/dvd you need to make sure that boot sequence priority is cd/dvd rom on 1st slot
