SMART is storage monitoring. It monitors your hard drive for failure. You really don't want to turn it off. And it sounds like you might be having a problem with your drive. Do you get any other errors?

Hi,

Does this mean you were unable to boot from the CD, or unable to get into the recovery console? Or, did you try to do a repair installation of WinXP and you still an error of some kind?

First step I would do is to get into the recovery console and run chkdsk /r. That should at least mark any bad sectors and might be able to recover the damaged Ntfs.sys file. If not, you can extract the missing file(s) from the CD but if it's more than one or two that are missing/damaged, a repair install of windows might be easier.

To get to the recovery console from the XP CD:

Hi,
The harddrive on the unit can be causing the problem. Disconnect the harddrive and check if the error code changes.
If the error changes , it a faulty harddrive.
Second , you can reset the BIOS to factory defaults and then check for error.Also let me know if there are any beep codes that hear when the SMART error is displayed

Thanks
Proton

Linux mint 12 won't boot from CD


Restart your computer, press repetedly a key to enter BIOS, normally Del, go to Advanced BIOS Features probably and change to boot primarly from CD/DVD (1st Boot Device CD/DVD , or something like that), save and exit BIOS, and restart your computer with Linux Mint CD inside. Be aware that if you make wrong changes in BIOS, you could damage your computer.

My averatec booting problem


The SMART is the monitoring system that is embedded in all hard disks - if it reports a failure it means that the hard disk has died. You need to replace the disk and only after that you can reinstall.

I have averatec 3200 boot failure how to rboot it


Boot failures are generally caused by the system not seeing the hard drive or not being able to read it. You should enter the system bios and see if it can see the hard drive or see if the system sees it while booting up. It could just have some bad files or bad sectors. Where it's in a notebook it probably doesn't have a bad connection. You can also boot off your system CD and choose recovery and see if you can see the hard drive.

Bios


It may be necessary to replace the BIOS IC if it is socketed and if it is not stored in flash there, you may have trouble ever accessing the password.

There might be a 'hack' to learn the password but that is out of my experience.
If you can prove the unit is yours, maybe Averatec will supply you with a way to bypass the password.

Reset


If you mean factory defaults, you do this through the BIOS setup.
During the initial boot, a message should flash on the screen telling you which F key to push to enter Setup.
This is, on most systems, F1 or F2.

The text menu normally shows a selection called Factory Defaults or Auto Setup or similar language.
