Question about Samsung SpinPoint P80 SP1604N 160 GB Hard Drive
The imminent drive failure notification is from the S.M.A.R.T. feature on your hard drive. It means your drive is not working according to specs. More that likely when you installed SP3 the drive was accesses more than normal and the controller electronics noticed the errors. The Hard drive can detect when it is operating out of the range that is ok. You need to backup your data and replace your hard drive as soon as possible to prevent data loss.
I hope this help, If so please rate my solution.
