S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology) is a diagnostic method originally developed by IBM that at that time referred to as "Predictive Failure Analysis". This technology was developed for IBM mainframe drives to give advanced warning of drive failures. Based on this diagnostic, Compaq announced IntelliSafeTM, which was submitted to the ATA/IDE standards committees and the resulting standard was named S.M.A.R.T.
S.M.A.R.T. analyzes many of the mechanical attributes; over time, some failures can be predicted by detecting if the hard disk drive is moving out of tolerance. While the S.M.A.R.T. technology can detect upcoming issues, not all hard drive failures are predictable.


All this means on most modern drives is the hard drive is coming close to the maximum tolerances

I usually switch off in the bios smart monitoring.

This system is trying to predict a possible failure, which may or may not occur..

Smart is a hard drive checking system, it monitors the hard drives for any potential failure and advices what it finds,
i would back up all your data on that drive
hard disk 0 is your boot up disk.

do a disc check on the drive.

good luck

    it may be that there is nothing wrong with the drive, if that is so ,after a disc check, and you do not hold critical data on that drive, go into the bios and turn smart off.

How to resolve problems (smart failure predicted on hard disk 0 : toshiba MQ01ABD050 - (S1))


Copy all the data from the drive to another drive because this one is predicted to fail very soon. Format the drive. That might work, but unlikely since SMART is a hardware problem and format is more of a software driven solution. It has some elements of a hardware issue, but not enough to fix most SMART problems. A low level format might help, but that is not a DIY.

Save all of your files to an external storage device (Flash Stick or desktop drive) and the replace the hard drive. Do it quickly, because there is no time period given before it fails. And it will.

SMART Failure Predicted on Hard Disk 0: WDC WD3200BEVT-75ZCT2-(S1) WARNING: Immediately back-up your data and replace your hard disk drive. A failure may be imminent. Press F1 to Continue


just means its time to backup all your information, as if the hard drive does fail theres a good chance you may lose some or all of your information.
hard drives aint that expensive around 30 pounds +
and you can replace it with any sata hard drive.

DELL Studio 1737, last week my computer shut down and now all I have is a message that states the following....SMART Failure Predicted on hard disk 0: WDC WD3200BEVT-75ZCT2-(S1)......WARNING: Immediately...


It sounds like the failure message is saying your hard drive is about to lose sector 0. But if you press F1 it will let you continue your boot and then you can backup your computer.

You can just do the system backup to a set of DVD's as instructed by the dell restore disk creator program. I have done this for my mothers home pc and works pretty well. Then when the HD does finally fail you can replace it and reload your system with the newly made restore disks.

here's what you should do.. first, as mentioned, you should backup all your important files in another drive or an optical drive... once you have done it, format your hard drive and perform scans to check the error.. during scan, you will see errors on it and you may not be able to fix it since the drive is internally damaged.. purchase a new one ok? just make sure to backup all your files..

Error message at startup !!


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:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Self-Monitoring,_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.
