Pri master hard disk s.m.a.r.t. status bad, backup and replace press del to resume


Hard drive is bad or is going to fail soon.

Solution


Backup your information and contact the maunufacturer of the computer or the hard drive for replacement or additional help.


In some very rare cases the S.M.A.R.T. implementation on your computer may have issues of its own and may need to be patched before replacing the hard drive.


If I am receiving the S.M.A.R.T. error, is it ok if I continue to use my hard drive and do not replace it?


As stated above, S.M.A.R.T. is designed to detect upcoming failures in the hard drive.

While it is possible that the hard drive may not fail for several months, it is still inevitable that the hard drive will fail.


It is ok to continue to use the hard drive, however, we highly recommend that if you are still under warranty that you consider getting the drive replaced before your warranty runs out.


hope this helps

Hard disk failure imm


Hello

The hard drive is a mechanical device that WILL fail - it is only a matter of time. Since you are being prompted that yours is about to fail, you need to get a backup of your data as soon as possible.

Use a USB memory stick, USB hard drive, CD or DVD disk or network drive to copy your data from the hard drive immediately. Once your data is copied to a safe location, you can run CHKDSK /r /f from the CMD line to check the hard drive and possibly fix issues.

If the hard drive has "Bad Sectors", you will need to replace the hard drive.

When statring my computer hp presario cq61 a message appeared "no bootable device found. then i made the hard disk check and it showed "no hard disk exists" What can i do?


Here are a few possibilities:
1. A huge possibility is that your hard drive has failed. This usually happens to computers 4 years old or longer. Unfortunately, it would be pretty costly to recover any data on a failed hard drive. You will have to replace the old hard drive with a new, compatible hard drive and install a fresh operating system on it. To do this, you need to consult someone who is somewhat familiar with computer troubleshooting or visit a store such as BestBuy for help.
2. The hard drive's cable is loose or disconnected (This usually happens when the hard drive was recently tampered with)

Hi, my Sony Vaio starts with message about upcoming hard drive crash. The HD is however Toshiba's, MK8025GAS-(PM). Is that possible? My laptop is 4 years old. Thanks


vita_london

It is possible that the hard drive is not Sony brand hard drive as they do not manufacture there own hard drives. As for the message that you are getting it is because the hard drive is failing over to many sectors. With the drive being 4 years old this would be just the drive wearing out. So I would recommend you back up your data ASAP and replace the hard drive. You should be able to replaces it with the same type of drive. You just need to know if you need a PATA or SATA drive. The link below will help you figure that out.

E68 is a hard drive failure. Possible causes are bad sector in your hard drive, need to re-flow your south bridge, or and x-clamp replacement. They are all possible fixes but the hard drive is the first. Hope this helps you.

Acer Netbook OS


if you are getting this message about corrupted partitions, you need to check and possibly replace the hard drive. There is a program to check the hard drive called Hard Disk Sentinel. It is designed for SSD hard drives like the Acer Aspire One has. Yours has a 160GB hard drive in it now.

Firelite HDD repair


The only think that can be replaced is the whole had drive unit inside the plastic enclosure.

If you disassemble an hard drive unit on normal environment you have over 90% of chances to damage the disks, as hard drives are normally built in a special e pressurized environment (clean room).

Therefore , even if it is possible (providing that also control board is replaced) the 60Gb 'internal disks' with 120MB, it is not worth attempting the operation, as chance this is unsuccessful are too big, and such rebuilt hard drive won't be a reliable data support.

If instead you want just to replace the external USB enclosure, in that case the operation can be done with no problem, just find a 120 GB disk and replace the old 60GB.
