    when the Smart drive erro shows up, it means that your hard drive is indeed failing. Backup your data and replace the harddrive.

How to resolve problems (smart failure predicted on hard disk 0 : toshiba MQ01ABD050 - (S1))


Copy all the data from the drive to another drive because this one is predicted to fail very soon. Format the drive. That might work, but unlikely since SMART is a hardware problem and format is more of a software driven solution. It has some elements of a hardware issue, but not enough to fix most SMART problems. A low level format might help, but that is not a DIY.

SMART failure predicted on hard disk 0:


There is a big problem with newer conponents and Win XP versions prior to SP2. Especially with newer motherboards.

You have to make a bootable SP2 disk if you don't already have one. To do this use the slipstream proceedure specified on the Ms website. Many other websites describe the process with easier language.

Slipstreaming is a common practice now. Essentially, you copy your original install disk to the c: drive then download SP2 to C: drive then download the slipstream utility from MS. Running the slipstream utility then inserts the proper drivers (ide and HD drivers too) into the licensed copy you have. You then create a bootable disk from the slipstreamed files you have.

This approach is resolving alot of blue STOP errors and SMART errors.

ALSO, you want to make sure you are installing any drivers provided by the MB manufacturer AND Drive maker.

Good Luck

Smart failure predicted on hard disk toshiba mk4025gas ( pm )


This means your hard drive is bad or about to go bad and needs to be replaced. If you can still access the drive, immediately back up anything important to you. You will then need to replace the hard drive. Thanks and please take a moment to rate this solution with a fixya rating, even if the news isn't what you wanted to hear. Thanks! :c)

ACER SMART failure


SMART means self monitoring and reporting tool, this is the option which performs certain test for the status of hard disk health, if its coming it means condition of your hard disk is not good, its better if you immediately back up your data and replace it, by the way you can also disable this warning through the bios, just disable the smart feature in hard disk

Hard disk problem


Smart is a BIOS based harddrive testing utility, it is warning you that the harddrive is about to fail.
You should back up all your personal files as soon as possible and buy a new harddrive.

Seagate 100GB Hard Drive for notebook SMART failure


Solution #1 is grossly incorrect. The S.M.A.R.T. mechanism is software/application/drive content agnostic. It is a firmware-based predictive failure feature. If the S.M.A.R.T. test returns a certain bit, then the drive is degrading and in need of replacement. If the disk is under warranty, then it generally qualifies for free replacement. If it is not under warranty, then you can run diagnostics such as http://www.santools.com/smart/unix/manual which can sometimes identify the specifics. Sometimes the problem is transient, like the disk was powered on/off too many times in a short amount of time, or the temperature is too high.

here's what you should do.. first, as mentioned, you should backup all your important files in another drive or an optical drive... once you have done it, format your hard drive and perform scans to check the error.. during scan, you will see errors on it and you may not be able to fix it since the drive is internally damaged.. purchase a new one ok? just make sure to backup all your files..

SMART stands for Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology.

If you want lots of details on what it is, and does, take a look at this link:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Self-Monitoring,_Analysis,_and_Reporting_Technology

It is highly unlikely that you will be able to fix this since it's a hardware problem on the hard drive. The drive may last for years or it may die tomorrow. At a minimum I would back up everything you care about on a regular basis.

If you found this information helpful I would appreciate it if you would rate this solution. I hate to beg, but over half of the solutions I've posted have no feedback. I'm not paid for this I'm just trying to help.
