Hello, I have a Toshiba L450D-11x and recently I have been having some problems with it. When I boot it up it goes onto a screen saying.. "SMART Failure Predicted on Hard Disk 5: TOSHIBA...


You can try this below by following the link I have provided from Microsoft. I do not know what operating system you are using but this feature works on many. The following is for for Windows XP

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315222

Choose:

Safe Mode (SAFEBOOT_OPTION=Minimal): This option uses a minimal set of device drivers and services to start Windows.

If you can get this far you can try to Start, programs accessories and then system tools. Then select disk defragmenter.

It may take awhile to run but let it finish and the restart your computer.

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.

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.

There is a message failure predicted on hard disk 4 warning: immediately back-up your data and replace your hard disk drive. a failure may be imminent press f1 to conntinue


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.

Smart disk programme


Back up your data as soon as possible so when the hard disk actually fails you won't lose your data.
When this happens you will need to buy a new hard disk and re-install Windows and you can copy your data back onto the new hard disk.

Failure is imminent


Bad sectors on a hard disk is an every day thing, the hard drive keeps a bunch of spare sectors and a table to reroute bad sectors to the backups. This warning basically means that you are out of backups, and now you may start losing real data if you do not change the hard disk.
