Question about Computers & Internet
When my sys is about to start booting it is displaying
primary master harddisk S.M.A.R.T Command failed , press F4 to resume
I am using Intel motherboard. what does it say, is my harddisk about to die.
It means that the hard disk SMART monitoring system has detected problems serious enough to warn you of the growing possibility of hard disk failure. Sometimes a drive will last quite awhile after this first notification, but there is a good chance of imminent failure, in minutes, hours, days, or weeks. You should immediately look into installing a replacement drive.
You should immediately copy any important data off the drive, perform full backups, and limit use of it.
If you can install drives yourself, a new hard disk (especially Seagates) usually come with software to clone your existing drive to the new drive. Otherwise, a repair shop will be able to do it for you.
I recommend also purchasing a drive enclosure for your old drive. For whatever life it still has, it will be a good backup of your system.
