SOURCE: Error message at startup !!

SMART stands for Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology.

If you want lots of details on what it is, and does, take a look at this link:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Self-Monitoring,_Analysis,_and_Reporting_Technology

It is highly unlikely that you will be able to fix this since it's a hardware problem on the hard drive. The drive may last for years or it may die tomorrow. At a minimum I would back up everything you care about on a regular basis.

If you found this information helpful I would appreciate it if you would rate this solution. I hate to beg, but over half of the solutions I've posted have no feedback. I'm not paid for this I'm just trying to help.

SOURCE: SMART FAILLURE PREDICTED ON HARD DISK O:WDC

Well this error message means that the automatic drive checking software that runs all the time has detected that the drive is failing, either the electronics or the media. You need to backup any data to a DVD or external drive. The press F1, is so you can continue on and do so. You can burn/copy the data to DVD or copy to a USB hard Drive. Then you will need to get a new drive and reinstall your Operating System & data again.

Western digital 3200aajs hard disk failure is imminent


This warning given from your SMART built into your hard drive. It is to be taken VERY seriously. You need to backup all your important data, Everything in My Documents, Pictures, Music etc. as soon as possible to another drive, either internal or external. This is a warning the drive WILL FAIL SOON. If you plane on cloning everything to another hard drive, do the backup FIRST because cloning is ******* the bad drive and can cause the failure to happen sooner. Good luck. Hope this helps..

SMART is to measure your Hard Disk Drive health. This warning tells you to backup important stuff and prepare to replace the HDD. If the computer can no longer boot into Windows, connect the HDD to another PC or you can also get one of those HDD enclosures which will let you connect the HDD to other PC's through USB connection so you can backup your files.

Hope this help, goodluck!

Sometimes it is easier to install a new hard disk and reinstall Windows.
Then either connect the old hard drive as a slave drive (don't forget to set the jumper on this drive as a slave). The other way is to connect the old hard drive to a USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. this computer will see it as an external hard drive (provided the hard drive is still functioning).
Either way you can download and backup your files.

Bad hard drive?


the hard drive is damaged. install a new hdd and connect the old one as a secondary so you can extract your files after you reload the new one.

Failure is imminent


Bad sectors on a hard disk is an every day thing, the hard drive keeps a bunch of spare sectors and a table to reroute bad sectors to the backups. This warning basically means that you are out of backups, and now you may start losing real data if you do not change the hard disk.
