Does your hard drive get detected in the BIOS? If yes then you can recover data by plugging that hard drive as secondary and running a recovery application like Recover My Files.

Tips for a great answer:
SMART stands for "Self Monitoring and Reporting Technology".
You BIOS has detected a pending error in your hard drive.
take the hard drive out and use an enclosure to extract all the data you might want to take out of it soon, since that hard drive is failing.
If possible, try going into the BIOS and disabling SMART, so you can boot into Windows and copy all the necessary files you want to get off of the hard drive.
Removing the hard drive would ultimately get rid of this problem though
Restart your computer
during the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key usually Delete or F2 to enter setup
this will differ depending on which bios you have
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS
Navigate the BIOS menu using your arrow keys and use the on-screen legend for reference on how to change settings.
Look for a menu titled "Hardware" "Hard disk" or something similar. You are looking for an option that references "S.M.A.R.T."
Highlight the "S.M.A.R.T" option and set it to "Disabled" or "Off." Once you have changed the setting, choose "Save and Exit" from the menu or press the keyboard key corresponding to it (as listed in the legend).
Select "Yes" or press "Y" when the BIOS asks you to confirm your choice.
hope this helps
