Hi - S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology) is a technology designed to monitor the health of Hard Drives. It is a prediction that your drive may fail soon. S.M.A.R.T. has a mixed history of successful predictions but if you have any data you need to save I would take this warning seriously and back up your data, to HD0? or DVDs or an external drive.

You didn't say which Inspiron model you own so secondly I would call up Dell and have a tech walk you through the process of finding out which brand of HD is in your laptop and then going to that manufacturers website and downloading hard drive testing software for that brand, Seagate, Western Digital, Fujitsu, etc. or the tech will direct you to a Dell testing software download.

It's only through actually testing the HD with proper software that you will find out if your HD is really in jeopardy. DO NOT run HD tests on you drive if you have important data and you have not backed it up! If the software says your drive is OK you can probably turn off future false positive S.M.A.R.T warnings with a setting in the system BIOS.

Good Luck and Thanks for using Fix Ya.

Do as it suggests, if you can, backup your data. Purchase a new hdd, fit it, load windows, download all drivers from Dell and use a usb converter to copy files back from the faulty drive.

Smart failure occured in harddisk


Get to a command prompt during boot by pressing F8 and run chkdsk x: /f/r X being most likely the C drive that has the SMART predictive drive failure, or disable the option in BIOS.

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

Acer Aspire 5100: SMART Failure on Hard Disk 4


Hello there,

As per experience, SMART Utility will check your HDD for any errors that may occur.

I backed up everything and replaced a new HDD and got rid of the error.

Opened up the problematic HDD and noticed a very light scratch on its "platters".

As for me. Never ignore this warning before something might happen to your HDD and lost important data.
