Question about Sony VAIO VGN-AR630E Notebook
Guy you are taking it wrong or i might say understanding it wrong . Your computer is not refering to cd disk drive but HARD DISK DRIVE and suggesting you to back up your data before ultimate failure of your hard disk.
Please read the message again and then your brain will light up as now i have explained you the diff between drive and drive.
Just kidding , don't mind it.
SMART (Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology) is a hard drive pre-warning system, usually installed in system BIOS to check and report hard drive defects before they could result in ultimate failure. SMART analyzes the hard drive based on same reliability factors and warn users against predictable failures. These failures could occur due to gradual wear and tear, overheating, increased noise level, excessive bad sectors and other similar factors.
Thus, the user or system administrator gets enough time to take preventive measures like backing up the data or replacing the hard drive. If you are getting errors of such type, it is suggested that you should immediately backup all the data stored on the hard drive and replace it. However, if the hard drive is completely failed and you haven't taken any preventive step, you can seek Hard Drive Recovery expert's help to recover data from such physically crashed drive.
For an instance, you might receive the following error when trying to start a computer:
WARNING: Immediately back up your data and replace your hard disk drive. A failure may be imminent. SMART failure predicted on primary slave.
You might encounter such errors each time while starting the system. Such errors are signs of anticipating hard drive failure and thus requires user's attention. You need to follow these steps after you encounter this error message:
Backup all the stored data on a secondary storage media such as CDs or DVDs
Replace the failing hard drive as soon as possible
If you continuously ignore this error message and reach at the final stage of hard drive failure, consult a data recovery company. Hard Drive Data Recovery is provided through procedural techniques and advanced recovery tool.
Now i believe the whole picture is absolutely clear ie:-
why the problem was not rectified after (cd)drive replacement and reason for you to go to safe mode since 8 months.
This time don't replace your cd drive but replace hard disk drive.
Don't mind it again just trying to add some humour in this tensed situation.
Also like to mention that your previous cd drive would be still functional because there was no problem in it and this is also another area for you to look at .
