Go to the bios screen at startup and disable HDD smart .
typically this option is found under Advanced chipset menu. you enter setup by pressing F1, the 'delete' key or what ever key it says when you first boot the sytem. Go to Hard Disk Management or what ever they call on you cmos/bios/setup and shut it off. This will allow you to transfer what you need to back up.

When I was trying to boot the system the following error is getting flashed on my screen and asking me to press F4 to continue. pri master hard disk: S.M.A.R.T. command failed


this is a warning your hard drive is about to fail
you could run the check disk utility
click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to repair any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive then defragment your hard drive
hope this helps

Whenever I turn on my laptop it says "Pri Master Hard Disk: s.m.a.r.t. command failed"


This normally means that the hard drive is starting to go bad. Back up your data as soon as possible and if the PC is under warranty contact them for a replacement. For further information about the SMART error please see http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000184.htm
