A failure message from the SMART system of this nature indicates that a catastrophic hard drive failure could be imminent. Without delay, back up ANY data you want to keep. This error isn't going to go away, and is being reported by the drive controller.
Whilever you can access the drive, move any data you want onto another media (such as DVD or external USB hard drive) because chances are it's not going to work much longer. You need to look at buying a new hard drive as soon as you possibly can, and migrating the data to it.
Files and Settings Transfer Wizard will be able to backup your data to another media.

SOURCE: computer will not boot
If you're confident enough, power-up and enter the BIOS. You need to find the reference to S.M.A.R.T and deselect it - then see if the hard drive will boot.
If it does, backup any important media before using Windows to check the disk. In XP open 'My Computer', right click on the drive, scroll down down and open 'Properties' > 'Tools' >'Check now'
and select both options before hitting 'Start'.
It's difficult to say whether the problem was software initiated or simply that the drive is shot.

Sounds like you have a hard drive failure. Get your recovery disk out if you have one, install a new drive and reinstall. If you had not backed up your data you may be too late. There are services but they are expensive.
