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.

I did a self test on my hp compaq nc6400 and got a read failure message.is this my hard drive.does it need to be replaced


First thing, back up all of the files that you want to keep onto either an external drive/stick/disc etc as read failures relate to hard disc drive read/write errors within specific clusters or sectors. You may get away with replacing the drive for the moment but your best bet is to run CHKDSK which will require a reboot as its a DOS utility and then run disk defragmenter which can be found in the system tools folder within Windows Vista. This will take quite a long time depending on the size of the drive but it should find any damaged clusters/sectors and quarantine them so that the installed applications don't write any files to these areas. If the however the drive starts clicking and excessively whirring

My HP pc keeps throwing the error 1005 at 31%, I did just install a cpu (used) so I am reformating with discs. Any good ideas?


Hi,

Error 1005 when using HP recovery DVDs
Before using the Recovery Disc, make sure the HDD is good. The Hard Disc Driver Test can performed either through [F2] Screen : Start up Diagnostics or through [F10] : Diagnostics . The [F2] / [F10] should be held while turning on the computer to get to the respective windows. In most cases, the reason for this error: 1005 is the Hard Driver failure.

You could also try to remove a memory module as sometimes Vista does not like a large amount of memory installed when using recovery CD/DVD's.



Regards.

Turn on goes to black screen


Can you access F10 bios - if you can access bios you have a hard disc failure - remove you hard drive - boot the system without the hdd and see if the pixie boot boot goes through - seen it before - your hdd is unservicable.

Trying to run recovery disc on computer and cd rom isn't reading


I see this as one of 2 possible failures.
  1. Optical drive failing. Take out the Hard drive, see if the recovery disk, or another bootable disk will boot. If no change, replace the optical drive.
  2. Hard Drive failing. If the system will boot to a CD with the HDD out or if replacing the optical drive has no change, then the HDD is the next logical failure point.

Still wont boot


Disk boot failure is usually a sign that your operating system has become corrupt in some way.
If you've got your Windows disc, put that in the CD rom, then boot the computer.
There's a "repair" option that you can select, instead of re-installed Windows.
That *should* fix the problem.
It's also (thought unlikely) possible that your hard drive has died completely.

When you turn the computer on it says SMART Failer predicted on hard disk 0: HTS54108G9SA00-(S1)


S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology) is a diagnostic method originally developed by IBM that at that time referred to as "Predictive Failure Analysis". This technology was developed for IBM mainframe drives to give advanced warning of drive failures. Based on this diagnostic, Compaq announced IntelliSafeTM, which was submitted to the ATA/IDE standards committees and the resulting standard was named S.M.A.R.T.
S.M.A.R.T. analyzes many of the mechanical attributes; over time, some failures can be predicted by detecting if the hard disk drive is moving out of tolerance. While the S.M.A.R.T. technology can detect upcoming issues, not all hard drive failures are predictable.


All this means on most modern drives is the hard drive is coming close to the maximum tolerances

I usually switch off in the bios smart monitoring.

This system is trying to predict a possible failure, which may or may not occur..

Hard drive failure - Compaq N400


Yes, your hard drive may have serious problems. Does the machine have a floppy drive? If so, will it boot to DOS? Or, if you have an XP or linux install CD, will it boot from CD?

Can you hear the hard drive spin up when computer is powered on? Some drives are very quiet, so you might have to put your ear close. Does the drive have an abnormal clicking sound? Western Digital drives were famous for this symptom of failure.

Try swapping the drive into a spare or friend's computer. If the symptoms are nearly identical (no boot), then this points to the drive as failed. Note, that if it does get part way through the boot process, your Operating system (XP, 2000) may blue screen, instead of completely booting. But, if it does get that far, there may be more hope for the drive.

Suggest also you download manufacturer's diagnostic software and run it.

Hard drive failures are very common, some happening within the warranty period or shortly thereafter. This is why backing up your data to CD, flash drive, or other media is so important.
