When i power up my laptop this message appear: S.M.A.R.T. Status Bad, Backup and Replace. Press F1 to Resume" After i press F1 windows starts but then my desktop freez. Can i do something to repair this...


SMART stands for 'Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology' and a bad status means that your drive has errors and is likely to fail soon. There is generally very little if anything you can do to repair such drives.
I recommend backing up any important data on the drive as soon as you can and replacing the drive.
Most computer repair shops will be able to retrieve data from a failing drive and supply and fit a new one for you, charges for these parts/services will vary depending on where you go.

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

I received the following error on my HP Pavilion laptop: SMART Failure Predicted on Hard Disk 4: WDC WD2500BEVS-60UST0-(S1) Warning: Immediately back-up your data and replace your hard disk drive. A...




SMART is used to measure your HDD health.It warns you of impending failure of your hard drive. If it goes down, it's a good idea to backup important stuff and prepare to replace the HDD.

S.M.A.R.T is an acronym for Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology systems (SMART) and it's usually built in to most modern ATA and SCSI hard disks.
If you need further assistance, feel free to ask. If this answers or solves your issue, please rate it. Thanks, Joe

I cannot boot my system i had a problem that smart command


SMART Stands for Self Monitoring Analsys and Reporting Technology that can predict about a probable hardware disaster in the near future and it helps you to analyse the health status of your HDD. Once you run the command and if it fails it gives you the option F1 and F2. Try to continue by pressing F2.

This should work and take you further. If it doesnt work and returns the error... possibly your HDD is under Risk. Try to work on safe mode if it goes for a boot. But all these symptoms shows a criticality on HDD and this indicates that backup your HDD and get a new one restored with this data which is backed up.

You should also see if the HDD led is flickering and that can always be a positive sign that your HDD is getting read. But no confirmation on if the Disk is read successfully or it is damaged.

Good Luck.

In the boot sequence it says SMART failure.......... backup ur HDD it may crash anytime.............. press F1 to continue........ but in the bios option hdd compability test result shows hdd is ok.... pls...


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.

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
