    i would check the leads from your motherboard to hard drive Ide,Sata make sure they are securely seated or just replace them if faulty they can give out a similiar error message also no dust built up
    you could download it to another hard drive just to make the floppy discs to boot from then uninstall it if you do not need it

P0450 code on a honda civic


Here is the definition.

The Code P0450 indicates that the Evaporative Pressure Sensor output value is not changing during the EVAP Monitor test and/or the operation of the vehicle. This code uses "two trip" logic, which means that the fault condition must be present during two successive cold starts and vehicle operation.
The sensor is mounted in the top of the gas tank near the sending unit. You would need to test the pressure sensor.

You can try to do a Power drain of the system ie disconnect all the cables from the pc and press and hold the power button of the tower for 30 to 40 sec. than reconnect only the keyboard the mouse and the monitor and turn it on. try to enter the BIOS page ( keep on tabbing the F10 key to enter BIOS is Windows Vista during the start up and F1 in Windows XP) and from their you can run a Smart test on the Hard drive. You can also try to boot the Pc to the safe mode and check whether the windows loads or not. From the Advanced boot option try to do a Start up repair.

Smart drive failed during diagnostic test


Bad sectors are starting to show up on the hard drive. Thats what the smartdrive program is for, its checks the hard drive to see if there are any bad spots or potential bad spots on the platter inside of the hard drive.

It will definitely have to be replaced. Replace it with a new one and if you can't then at least replace it with a known good used one.
