First of all, Copy the files while you still can. This is a good time to look for a new hard drive. The longer that drive is powered the sooner it will fail.

Hard disk failure imm


Hello

The hard drive is a mechanical device that WILL fail - it is only a matter of time. Since you are being prompted that yours is about to fail, you need to get a backup of your data as soon as possible.

Use a USB memory stick, USB hard drive, CD or DVD disk or network drive to copy your data from the hard drive immediately. Once your data is copied to a safe location, you can run CHKDSK /r /f from the CMD line to check the hard drive and possibly fix issues.

If the hard drive has "Bad Sectors", you will need to replace the hard drive.

A message appears on my boot screen that a parameter has exceeded its range so i need to back up. My mouse alone freezes all the time


The message about parameters is from SMART monitoring, a function of the motherboard. SMART monitoring keeps a watch on several hard drive parameters, and warns you when they go out of preset limits. It's meant as an early warning that the drive may be failing, and you should back up any important data while you still can. The message doesn't mean that hard drive failure is imminent, but it's a good idea to do the backup if you haven't. It's probably also a good idea to buy a replacement hard drive now. They aren't expensive. Use a program like Norton Ghost to copy the current drive image to the new one, and you won't need to restore your system from scratch later.

Your mouse problem might be related to the disk drive, or it could just be a coincidence. A new mouse is cheap if the freezing keeps happening after you resolve the hard drive issue.

When i turn on my laptop a warning notice comes on screen immediately saying smart failure predicted on hard disc 0:ST9160310AS-(PM). Warning immediately back up your data and replace your hard disc drive....


It means exactly what the message says.
The hard drive is going to fail in the near future. I recommend you back up your data before the hard drive fails completely.
When the hard drive fails, replace the hard drive, and use your Compaq recovery disk to install Windows and the device drivers plus your programs to get the laptop working again.

When I turn on my computer i get a message that says hard drive failure is imminent and it will not allow me turn it on


You're viewing that message because your hard drive needs to be replaced in your computer.

You'll need to take it to a local computer repair shop and tell them to replace your hard drive.

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