The compatibilty test doesn't check the drive operating parameters that SMART monitoring does. It's just verifying that the drive will work with the BIOS. SMART checks various drive paramaters while the drive is in use and warns you when something is enough out of tolerance that it may be heading for a failure. Best you back up your data like it says. Even if it's a false alarm, backing up is a good idea anyway.

Smart failure occured in harddisk


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.

My laptop is saying that their is no operating system not found what do i do to fix this problem i have a sylvania 8.9 lcd m 512mb and a 160gb hdd


check the bios whether the HDD is dectected (you can the get the bios by tapping F1 in XP and F10-in Vista and windows 7) if the hdd is dectected perform a smart short test (click on ur harddrive-smart support-smart short test )-----If the harddrive passes the test

-then try hitting ESC while boot up select the hdd to boot check if that works

if that doesnt work then you need to run the the operating system disc

DELL Studio 1737, last week my computer shut down and now all I have is a message that states the following....SMART Failure Predicted on hard disk 0: WDC WD3200BEVT-75ZCT2-(S1)......WARNING: Immediately...


It sounds like the failure message is saying your hard drive is about to lose sector 0. But if you press F1 it will let you continue your boot and then you can backup your computer.

You can just do the system backup to a set of DVD's as instructed by the dell restore disk creator program. I have done this for my mothers home pc and works pretty well. Then when the HD does finally fail you can replace it and reload your system with the newly made restore disks.

Well ur hard disk is your hard drive most generally. You can go into the bios and tell it "do not halt on any errors"

Acer Aspire 5100: SMART Failure on Hard Disk 4


Hello there,

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.

Hard drive controller


These can be fun and Hdd/IDE/SATA Controllers on Desktops are different than laptops.. Embedded controller chips as well as the Northbridge/Southbridge chips are integrated to everything else and its a nightmare to track down period. (Ive had to replace Integrated Modem chips to cure a Boot or BSOD error that states the Video Adapter needs to be changed) ..(Generally due to Power surge or other).. You are on the right track however and I'd just suggest running Memtest of the Knoppix to start be4 I can say other. Is there Shared or dedicated RAM for the GPU on this one? They manned both ways depending on the specific board revision..

Talk soon, Ken
