Question about Acer Aspire 7520-5185 Laptop
It is entirely possible, but not terribly likely, to have two drives fail in a row. I have had several of my drives make it more than 6 years, and I've seen students come in with dead hard drives they day they bought their machines.

Sometimes you can disable the SMART, or Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology, but on your Acer Aspire 7520, you cannot disable SMART in your BIOS.
It is possible that you received a hard drive that was already faulty, or you may have bought a refurbished drive that had been previously repaired and is failing again. I recommend purchasing a New harddrive, not refurbished. When installing the new hard drive, be very careful to not subject the Hard Drive to any jerking, dropping, impact, etc. as this will shorten the life of your drive considerably, or worse.

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
