What does error codeBIOHD=8 mean


It means your PC thinks the hard drive is starting to fail (the S.M.A.R.T. system has indicated a failure is imminent). There are some other things that can cause this but I would highly recommend that you back up any important data onto another drive/flashdrive or CD/DVD in case it is failing.

Hard disk failure imm


Hello

The hard drive is a mechanical device that WILL fail - it is only a matter of time. Since you are being prompted that yours is about to fail, you need to get a backup of your data as soon as possible.

Use a USB memory stick, USB hard drive, CD or DVD disk or network drive to copy your data from the hard drive immediately. Once your data is copied to a safe location, you can run CHKDSK /r /f from the CMD line to check the hard drive and possibly fix issues.

If the hard drive has "Bad Sectors", you will need to replace the hard drive.

When i turn on my laptop a warning notice comes on screen immediately saying smart failure predicted on hard disc 0:ST9160310AS-(PM). Warning immediately back up your data and replace your hard disc drive....


It means exactly what the message says.
The hard drive is going to fail in the near future. I recommend you back up your data before the hard drive fails completely.
When the hard drive fails, replace the hard drive, and use your Compaq recovery disk to install Windows and the device drivers plus your programs to get the laptop working again.

SMART is used to measure your HDD health.It warns you of impending failure of your hard drive. If it goes down, it's a good idea to backup important stuff and prepare to replace the HDD.

S.M.A.R.T is an acronym for Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology systems (SMART) and it's usually built in to most modern ATA and SCSI hard disks.
If you need further assistance, feel free to ask. If this answers or solves your issue, please rate it. Thanks, Joe

Smart test failed on the drive


A smart failure warning is an internal hard disk drive self-diagnostic that will help predict a failure of the hard disk drive. Any system that is displaying a SMART error should immediately have any important data backed up as the drive is not reliable and is impending failure if it hasn't failed already.
Resolution is hard disk drive replacement, Generally around $100 depending on size and speed of replacement HDD

On black white screen it says Hard Drive failure is imminent. Back up or replace


Your computer is set to warn you of controller failure to the hard drive. Its called SMART monitoring. You will have to replace the drive. Start backing up your precious data to a reliable drive before the unthinkable happens. Right now it will continue running normally, but it WILL fail. Portable hard drives are extremely cheap right now. Its recommended you purchase a portable drive that is at least twice the size of your current hard drive. Next, get a hard drive that is the same type of drive you have in your system (have a service tech help you with this if youre not comfortable doing this).
