Seems like your hard drive is about to die.

To double check, install http://support.wdc.com/product/download.asp?groupid=702&sid=30&lang=en

Burn the iso to a cd. Make sure you burn it as an image file.

Then when you turn on the computer, enter bios and make sure boot from cd is selected first. Restart with the cd you made inserted.

Let the tests run. If it fails a test, then contact westerndigital for a replacement. Tell them it failed the diagnostic tests.

SMART failure predicted on hard drive 2: WDC WD2500BEVS-22USTO-(S1)


This error is usually caused by excessive sector remapping, meaning that either your hard drive's heads are failing or the coating on the platters is. You need to clone the drive as soon as possible. If your data is critical (can't afford to lose it) we can do it for you using professional data recovery tools for $350. http://www.data-medics.com

Failure predicted on hark disk 4: wdc wd2500BEVT-222cto-(ST)


not sure if this is a statement or a question.
as the warning message says, your hard drive is expected to fail soon - you need to replace it before it does.
if you don't know how to replace it take it to your local friendly repair shop.

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

Hard drive going bad, you need to recover all your data as soon as possible. It is likely that the RSC has exceeded the space allocated to spare disc space, however, you can check this by downloading and running HDD tune (freeware) to ascertain the disc health and any bad sectors, if there are more than 2 bad sectors and the RSC on the health page is shown in red or yellow, the drive needs replacing

Smart says hard driveabout to crash


Copy any important files now to another computer or DVD/CD or USB drive. The drive may fail soon. If you buy a new drive, some come with software which will allow you to copy one drive to another. You can buy a USB interface to have the new drive connected to the laptop and then run the software. HTH
