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.

Hi:
Your hard drive is in dire trouble, and often you can still recover files from it sometimes. One suggestion is to buy a new hard drive, install your operating system on the new drive, and get your computer up and running, then install your old hard drive as a secondary slave hard drive and see if you can copy your files to your new hard drive.

Your hard drive is about to fail. You need to replace the hard drive and, if you have any data on your current one, you need to back it up immediately. Every minute your computer is turned on means that the hard drive could crash at any time.

ACER SMART failure


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

Hi,

You can redirect all your data to be saved into drive D and even downloads. Please look for the preferences of all your application software (can be seen in tools, option, change the default drive in Save In menu). Now, to free some space delete all temporary files from Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, Disk Cleanup. Hope this gives you an idea.

Best regards,
Rosener

System failure message


Yes, the ticking sound is the platelettes or the head trying to park, you may be lucky, if you press F8 on start up and try to get into safe mode, if so select 'last known good configuration' and press enter and if you get runnong back up important documents to cd. You may have to replace the hard drive if no luck with the boot up, but you may be able to rescue some files if when you replace the hard disk use your faulty one as a slsve drive and see if you can copy over your needed documents, good luck
