Bad sectors are starting to show up on the hard drive. Thats what the smartdrive program is for, its checks the hard drive to see if there are any bad spots or potential bad spots on the platter inside of the hard drive.

It will definitely have to be replaced. Replace it with a new one and if you can't then at least replace it with a known good used one.

Smart test failed on the drive


A smart failure warning is an internal hard disk drive self-diagnostic that will help predict a failure of the hard disk drive. Any system that is displaying a SMART error should immediately have any important data backed up as the drive is not reliable and is impending failure if it hasn't failed already.
Resolution is hard disk drive replacement, Generally around $100 depending on size and speed of replacement HDD

I have a problem with my dell studio laptop stating like smart hard disk failure in statrup and asks to hit F1 to continue..please give a solution for this problem...


Normally the SMART error occurs when the hard drive has gone bad.. What you do is.. Try running the dell diagnostics by turning on the computer holding the FN key.. It will run some tests... If it provides any error code then the Hard drive has gone bad you need to replace it.. Call up the Dell or a local tech and replace the hard drive

My Dell Inspiron 6000 has Samsung Model MP0603H hard drive. The computer was working fine till this morning when it would not boot. I ran diagnostic using the Dell CD and the results stated: Error Code...


Those codes all apply to the hard drive itself..

Replacing the hard drive is all you should have to do.

Below is a link to a brand new hard drive that will work in your Inspiron 6000

I have an Acer Aspire 3680 and about a month ago I had to replace my hard drive because it said a failure was immiment. I ordered the recovery disc from acer and totally re-done my laptop. Well last night,...


Whilst this error can occur due to a faulty hard drive or corrupt page file, but is also a symptom of faulty RAM memory. Unless you have heard "clunking" noises from your new hard drive, its unlikely to be the new disk this time.

Re-seat the memory first. If you have two memory modules installed try removing one at a time (see page 67 of the manual here ftp://ftp.work.acer-euro.com/notebook/aspire_5600/manual/AS%205600_3680.pdf )

Check the System Log in Event Viewer for additional error messages that might help pinpoint the device causing the error. Disabling memory caching of the BIOS might also resolve it. Finally, if all the above steps fail to resolve the error, take the system to a repair facility for diagnostic testing. If you the laptop is overheating, or you can't hear the fan running then fan failure might also be a possible cause.

"a disk error occured during a write operation" in file summary


It's not a problem with the hard drive, that's for sure. It's something with the music file. You will be able to see that if you move the file to a removable media or another hard drive you will most likely not be able to edit the properties. I don't know what the problem is though, just saying that the hard drive isn't bad. If you want a clarification, you said you had a Dell Computer. When booting up hit F12 and run Diagnostics. It should go through an auto set of diagnostics and then allow you to select what you want to run. Run full diagnostics on your hard drive. Any failure and you should replace the drive.
