This means your hard drive is bad or about to go bad and needs to be replaced. If you can still access the drive, immediately back up anything important to you. You will then need to replace the hard drive. Thanks and please take a moment to rate this solution with a fixya rating, even if the news isn't what you wanted to hear. Thanks! :c)

Smart failure predicted on hard disk 0:TOSHIBA MK4025GAS-(PM) warning :immediately back-uo your data and replace your hard disk draiver A failure may be imminent


It means that your hard drive is going to crash soon. If all of your important stuff is on there and you don't have an external hard driver or flash driver, shut down the computer until you do. Once you own another hard drive, boot back up and start the backing up process. There is a fantastic free backup program available here: http://www.fbackup.com/

One trick I've found that works is placing the hard drive in a refrigerator for 30 mins before using it. This will extend it's life by at least 15 minutes.
Good luck to you, and pleas leave me a positive rating! :)

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.

Smart failure hard disk 4 :wd1600bevt-222ct0-(si)


The error S.M.A.R.T. refers to Hard Drive hard drive that has detected damage to the disk and failure of the drive is imminent.

If the computer is booting to Windows after the SMART error, then back up all data on the disk immediately. The hard drive will need to be replaced to resolve this issue.

Also, I suggest that you start the Computer to BIOS and check whether the Hard Drive is detected in BIOS.

If the Hard Drive is detected in BIOS, then try to perform reinstalling Windows supplied in your computer once before getting the hard drive replaced.

My laptop had a ''smart failure predicted on hard disk 0: toshiba mk4025gas-(pm) Warning: immediately back up your data and replace youre hard disk drive. A failure may be imminent'' what does this...


This means that your laptop's motherboard has detected that the hard drive (where all of your data and operating system live) is operating outside of normal parameters. Hard drives are supposed to read/write/respond within specific parameters. If the drive stops operating within these parameters, it usually means that the drive is failing, and therefore your information should be backed up, and your drive should be replaced. Once you back up your data, you can contact HP support to get the hard drive replaced.

Replace hard drive


You didn't ask any question ....but you already know the answer. The drive is most likely now a paperweight.

If you have critical data to recover, you can contact Drive Savers ...they're pricey, but they're good!

Hope this helps - remember to rate! :)

Seagate 100GB Hard Drive for notebook SMART failure


Solution #1 is grossly incorrect. The S.M.A.R.T. mechanism is software/application/drive content agnostic. It is a firmware-based predictive failure feature. If the S.M.A.R.T. test returns a certain bit, then the drive is degrading and in need of replacement. If the disk is under warranty, then it generally qualifies for free replacement. If it is not under warranty, then you can run diagnostics such as http://www.santools.com/smart/unix/manual which can sometimes identify the specifics. Sometimes the problem is transient, like the disk was powered on/off too many times in a short amount of time, or the temperature is too high.

Error message at startup !!


SMART stands for Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology.

If you want lots of details on what it is, and does, take a look at this link:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Self-Monitoring,_Analysis,_and_Reporting_Technology

It is highly unlikely that you will be able to fix this since it's a hardware problem on the hard drive. The drive may last for years or it may die tomorrow. At a minimum I would back up everything you care about on a regular basis.

If you found this information helpful I would appreciate it if you would rate this solution. I hate to beg, but over half of the solutions I've posted have no feedback. I'm not paid for this I'm just trying to help.
