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 smart failure

It will be better if you visit the Compaq customer support services. Ask them if they can retain your data. I'm quiet sure they will

As I understand it, SMART is correct 50-60% of the time...means it's wrong 40-50% of the time.But..You can't take the risk, you have to assume something is wrong with your hard drive. So, i f you have important data there, go to a repair shop and they can save data from your hard drive and replace it, if necessary. If you want to solve it on our own, you need a boot cd with error checking. Any live boot cd with linux does that. Also, there are several live boot cds like Hiren's Boot, with rescue options.

Smart failure hard disk 4 :wd1600bevt-222ct0-(si)


The error S.M.A.R.T. refers to Hard Drive hard drive that has detected damage to the disk and failure of the drive is imminent.

If the computer is booting to Windows after the SMART error, then back up all data on the disk immediately. The hard drive will need to be replaced to resolve this issue.

Also, I suggest that you start the Computer to BIOS and check whether the Hard Drive is detected in BIOS.

If the Hard Drive is detected in BIOS, then try to perform reinstalling Windows supplied in your computer once before getting the hard drive replaced.

Usually it means your hard drive has crashed.
The PXE is your computer trying to connect to a network server (virtual hard drive).
Did you have any important files on the computer?

MY cOMPAQ pRESARIO CQ60 fell and cant complete boot


Most likely in this case, the damage is to the hard drive or its connection to the motherboard. The CQ series though has a three point screw attachment for the hard drive so Im more inclined to think that the shock of the landing has damaged the read/write head on the hard drive. If you happen to have another hard drive for a laptop, try installing a new drive and run the installation disc and see if it will complete and boot completely....if it will then the problem was the old drive.

Compaq Presario CQ60 recovery disc how to use


insert the disc into the drive, restart the computer.If it doesn't boot from disc, restart again.
As it restarts, press and hold F8(may be F2 or F12 depending on the settings)until the boot options screen appears. Using the arrow up/down keys select drive "d" or what ever drive letter represents the drive you put the disc into.
It will now(or should) continue to boot from the disc, follow the onscreen instructions to restore.

Reboot or repair harddisk


Please be a little more specific as to when you are recieving the error and word for word exactly what it says. Its hard to determine if it is a hardware or a software failure at this point. You could try booting off a windows xp disc, going into the recovery console and using the command chkdsk /p /r, it will try and locate bad sectors on the harddrive and fix them. I should let you know that harddrives are usually the first hardware component to fail in computers and have a life expectancy of 3-5 years.
