When I try to start up I get a 'smart failure predicted on hard disk 0, back up your files and replace the hdd'. Fair enough if I need a new hdd but it won't let windows start for me to access my files, just keeps going to disk check and then freezing. Even trying to start in safe,normal or last known good configuration modes same thing happens. Any ideas , much obliged.

Re: Problem on start up of an acer 5630
Hi there The drive is corrupt so you will need to plug it to another computer as a slave drive if you need the data from the drive, once you are satisfied you have all of your data you can then buy a new drive and proceed with a clean install of windows

This means either your hard disk is about to fail or it already has in which case you will need to purchase a new HDD (hard disk drive) and then contact acer to purchase recovery disks or if it is still under warranty then contact for service.
Check this site linked here to get more details about the faults with hard disc to Acer, and replacement procedure to the same. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ Pull up previous posts there, either by its

The hard drive has already failed, there are probably some bad sectors on the hardware so windows has corrupted files and can not back up. If you have the recovery disc, try and reload the operational system, it will quickly prove if the hardware is the issue. But! before you go out and buy a new hard drive have them test the old one first.
SMART means self monitoring and reporting tool, this is the option which performs certain test for the status of hard disk health, if its coming it means condition of your hard disk is not good, its better if you immediately back up your data and replace it, by the way you can also disable this warning through the bios, just disable the smart feature in hard disk
here's what you should do.. first, as mentioned, you should backup all your important files in another drive or an optical drive... once you have done it, format your hard drive and perform scans to check the error.. during scan, you will see errors on it and you may not be able to fix it since the drive is internally damaged.. purchase a new one ok? just make sure to backup all your files..
