Compaq/HP: When you first turn on the laptop and see the Compaq/HP logo screen, press the F11 key (you need to do this before the Compaq/HP logo disappears).

SMART measures physical attributes of the hard drive. Reformatting won't help that. A bad SMART status alone doesn't mean your drive is failing, but combined with the delayed writing failures and the slow speed, I'd replace it ASAP.

2 possible solutions to this
1. Use the roll back function of your operating system to roll back to the last back up.
2. Insert your restore disk or Windows disk and do a format/clean install.
If you have a restore disc it will have prompts to "restore" your system and give you a warning about losing data-save off what you want BEFORE doing this restore
If you have standard windows disk you may want to use the format utility in windows first to clean the drive and do a fresh install.
Once installed don't forget to download updates and back up and then reload your other software.
have fun this will take several hours depeneding on the amount of stuff you have to reload and patch up.

depending on the age and model, most acers come with a self-branded "recovery CD" creation program. I'm not sure why you need to do the restore, but assuming the computer will still boot, you need to find that program and have a couple cd's or dvd's handy and step through the prompts to create the cd's. Once you do, you need to restart the computer and boot it up with that CD you just created and step through the process. Make sure all your stuff is backed up first.

Tips for a great answer:
If your Compaq Presario has major issues, restoring it to factory defaults may be the best course of action.
There are a number of situations when completely restoring a computer to its factory settings is the best solution, including resolving virus infections and corrupt operating system files.
Back up all of your user data to a USB thumb drive, external hard drive or other device.
The restore process will destroy all of your data, so this is vital to do.
Turn on your computer and open your CD or DVD drive.
Place the restore CD that came with your Presario into the drive and restart your PC. If you do not have a restore CD, you can contact Compaq to order one.
Allow the computer to boot up from the restore CD.
You will see a series of messages guiding you through the restoration process, as well as several warnings that all data on the computer will be erased.
Continue the restoration process, and follow the prompts as needed.
You may need to locate the license key for your version of Windows; that key should be located on a label on the top of the computer case.
Hope this helps
