Changing the hard drive is a last resort. action. Loose or defective hard drive data cable as well as data corruption can cause the same alarm. Disconnect and reconnect the data cable. Download seatools and run it. The Seatools long test is a better way of detecting a screwed hard drive

If it gives a warning that the hard drive is about to fail, it means the hard drive will fail soon and that you should back up your data while you have a chance.
When the hard drive fails then you need to replace the faulty and install Windows on the new hard drive with the laptop's device drivers and your programs to get a working laptop again.

Hard drive going bad, you need to recover all your data as soon as possible. It is likely that the RSC has exceeded the space allocated to spare disc space, however, you can check this by downloading and running HDD tune (freeware) to ascertain the disc health and any bad sectors, if there are more than 2 bad sectors and the RSC on the health page is shown in red or yellow, the drive needs replacing

Your drive is failing and you should back up any important data you need onto CD/DVD or an external USB device (hard drive/pen drive). The drive may keep working for a while but your system is warning you that it has detected a critical error with the drive and failure is imminent.

HP laptop will not recover or restore! HP


Run a system restore back to factory default setting.

Start system and hold down the f11 key till it rings a bell.

This will start the restore program.

Follow the system prompt. But remember to backup your documents and files.

Good luck.

System board failure


You may need a new CMOS battery.
For now, you will most certainly need to reconfigure your BIOS as it is probably not recognizing your hard drive.
Your PC should tell you which key to use to enter your BIOS setup, such as ESC, DEL, F2 etc.  Press the appropriate key while booting to access the BIOS configuration.  From there, see if there is an option to set the hard drive to AUTO.
Also, it's possible that the BIOS is recognizing the hard drive, but your Master Boot Record (MBR) has been corrupted.  To fix this, insert your OS (windows) disk and load into a DOS command prompt via selecting the REPAIR option.  Once at your command prompt, type in FIXMBR, and press <ENTER>. It will warn that rewriting the MBR may cause problems...just continue.  Once successful, reboot your PC.
If that doesn't work, then you will probably need more help reconfiguring the BIOS, and may need to replace the small battery on your motherboard.

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

Replace hard drive


You didn't ask any question ....but you already know the answer. The drive is most likely now a paperweight.

If you have critical data to recover, you can contact Drive Savers ...they're pricey, but they're good!

Hope this helps - remember to rate! :)
