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.

SOURCE: pri master hard disk s.m.a.r.t. status bad, backup and replace press del to resume

Hard drive is bad or is going to fail soon.

Solution


Backup your information and contact the maunufacturer of the computer or the hard drive for replacement or additional help.


In some very rare cases the S.M.A.R.T. implementation on your computer may have issues of its own and may need to be patched before replacing the hard drive.


If I am receiving the S.M.A.R.T. error, is it ok if I continue to use my hard drive and do not replace it?


As stated above, S.M.A.R.T. is designed to detect upcoming failures in the hard drive.

While it is possible that the hard drive may not fail for several months, it is still inevitable that the hard drive will fail.


It is ok to continue to use the hard drive, however, we highly recommend that if you are still under warranty that you consider getting the drive replaced before your warranty runs out.


hope this helps

> hard-drive bad

If you get a message "press F1 to continue", then do so.
Be ready to "backup" all your files and music from the disk-drive onto a USB memory-stick, or to burn some CD/DVD disks.

Then, replace the disk-drive, and reinstall Windows.

Turn on computer and message reads ****bad check sum (CMOS) ****


That means that after computer had been off for a long time the CMOS battery has drained, and CMOS (BIOS) settings had been reset to default.

Usually the computer will work fine after pressing F1, but you may get wrong date and time.

Try charging battery completely, often the problem disappears, if it does not , then the choice is between pressing F1 each time you start the laptop, or disassembling the laptop and replacing CMOS internal coin battery, located on the lower side of the motherboard.

Press F1 to resume


Try changing the CMOS battery (leave the battery out for 5mins then replace with new 1) if that does not work flash the BIOS

Let me know how you get on...
