This warning is to let you know the hard drive may fail sometime in the near future so you should backup your data frequently.
When the hard drive eventually fails, you can replace the hard drive, re-install Windows, your programs and data.

Smart failure predicted on hard disk repair


This means either your hard disk is about to fail or it already has in which case you will need to purchase a new HDD (hard disk drive) and then contact acer to purchase recovery disks or if it is still under warranty then contact for service.

A predict failure is just that. There is a good chance it fail. Make a backup and replace. You can also turn the SMART monitoring off in BIOS if you don't want the warning.

Smart failure predicted on disk and cannot load Vista after format due to projected failure. Now it is happening again on a different HDD. Can both HDD's be ready to fail?


It is entirely possible, but not terribly likely, to have two drives fail in a row. I have had several of my drives make it more than 6 years, and I've seen students come in with dead hard drives they day they bought their machines.

Smart failure predicted on hard disk drive 0 is the massage


SMART or smart or S.M.A.R.T. stands for - Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology or S.M.A.R.T. it is a monitoring system for computer hard drives to detect and report on various indicators of reliability, in the hope of anticipating failures. Heed the warnings. Do not ignore them.

usually means you have multiple badsectors, it can be repaired using your HD manufacturer bootable cd but usually its just a matter of time before it rolls over and dies. your best option is to image the drive with something like clonezilla or just backup your important files to a cd or dvd and buy another HD off a site like newegg.

Acer Aspire 5100: SMART Failure on Hard Disk 4


Hello there,

As per experience, SMART Utility will check your HDD for any errors that may occur.

I backed up everything and replaced a new HDD and got rid of the error.

Opened up the problematic HDD and noticed a very light scratch on its "platters".

As for me. Never ignore this warning before something might happen to your HDD and lost important data.

Acer 1642 laptop is giving me much trouble. Was working fine until, fapoot... now i receive a message: SMART failure predicted on hard drive 0:ST6100825A-(PM), please help if you can


A SMART failure means that your hard drive is predicted to fail
soon. Fortunately these warnings are not right 40%-50% of the time. Go to the command prompt (start- run- type in "cmd")
In the prompt type in "chkdsk"
This will run tests on your hard drive and tell if there is anything wrong with it.

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

Hard disk problem


Smart is a BIOS based harddrive testing utility, it is warning you that the harddrive is about to fail.
You should back up all your personal files as soon as possible and buy a new harddrive.
