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:,_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.

Hard Disk Problem

That failure is predicted by the SMART reporting system. Its a status chip on the drive that reports to apps that can read the smart data from the hard drive. Its not always accurate but it usually is.

Time backup your data on that drive ASAP and then buy a new drive.

I got this error message when I startup my Compag Presario v2000 laptop------------------ SMART Failure Predicted on Hard Disk 0: TOSHIBA MK6025GAS-(PM) WARNING: Immediately back-up your data and replace...

If you have any data you value on it I wouldn't mess around, but would back it up to to external media to begin with.
Then run chkdsk (link here) and here, to see if you can recover the bad sectors and then defrag it.
You could contact Toshiba support to see what criteria trigger that warning, see one link here, but I would definitely be prepared for it to fail suddenly, as these things frequently give little warning and then are gone...Once that happpens it can be expensive and time consuming to recover your data, if in fact you are able to.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

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
