Yes, you can format the hard drive, but you might want to make sure you have a way to restore the software that will be lost after you format.
If you have not backed up the hard drive, do it now. After a good backup is made you can use third party programs to check your hard drive and maybe correct the problem(s).

You might want to replace the drive before it dies and you lose any data you have stored on it. Make sure you have your info backed up on an external device, i.e. dvds, usb drives, etc.

How to disable smart drive if there is no option, pls help


I do not recommend disabling SMART. SMART monitors your Hard drive for any impending failures and alerts you in advance if it detects anything abnormal with the drive. I strongly recommend you keep SMART enabled.

If you still want to disable it, please visit http://sourceforge.net/projects/smartmontools/ to download SmartMonTools.

Try this command set "smartctl -- smart=off -- saveauto=on /dev/hdX"

Where "X" is the HDD you want to de-S.M.A.R.T.

hda is the first drive detected, hdb the second, and so on. You can fish for it.

1720-SMART HARD Drive detects immenent failure. What shall I Do?


Sounds like your hard drive is about to pack up. You can disable SMART for your hard drive in your CMOS setup. which will allow you to boot up your pc. I suggest you back-up all your data as soon as possible before the hard drive fails completely.
