American Megatrends is telling us our Pri Master Hard disk: S.M.A.R.T. is bad, backup and replace.

By questions and answers from above, is this telling us to replace hard drive?

It is recommended to do a hard drive backup as soon as possible. And even replace that hard drive as soon as possible. Before full physical failure.

Before you deal with SMART let me explain what it is and what is the function of SMART:-SMART stands for Self Monitoring And Repair/Reporting Technology
It's not that useful, and I've never seen a Smart error fix itself. It works as a helping tools for drive. it detect the drive problem.

Now Follow This Steps:-Enter to your bios by pressing DEL or F2 or it may F9 or F10 key it depends on the motherboard & disable the SMART drive feature, you don't need it. It's a leftover from the past for the most part.

If you can't find SMART function in your BIOS, just try this-- You must enable the 'advanced settings' first, usually by pressing ctrl&F1 when in the main BIOS screen. Then if you go into standard BIOS settings (or something like that), the option for SMART to be enabled should be there

Rakesh here. hi, i can notice several changes with my samsung SP04IIN HDD as mentioned below.. 1. more noise from my hard disk these days. 2. primary master hard drive s.m.a.r.t command failed, press...


The drive sounds like it is failing. Noisy drives are a classic sign of impending failure. I would back up all of my critical files and replace the drive as soon as possible. The longer you wait, the more damage can be done and you might not be able to recover files. Good luck

When I was trying to boot the system the following error is getting flashed on my screen and asking me to press F4 to continue. pri master hard disk: S.M.A.R.T. command failed


this is a warning your hard drive is about to fail
you could run the check disk utility
click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to repair any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive then defragment your hard drive
hope this helps

Check on harddrive you find jumper on it.
Then read on harddisk you can find there is specifiaction for master, slave and cable select jumper settings.
Put jumper as cable select then check.
Also reconnect sata or ide and power cable to harddisk.
Then check .
Let me know if you need more assistance.
Thanks.

More than likely, since you say you did a DOS install of the OS, you did not set the FDISK parameters to set your primary drive. Insert the DOS CD you used to format the system. Boot to a DOS prompt and run the FDISK command. It should have an option, I believe it is number 2 or 3 to "Set primary drive". Select your hard disk 0 as this drive and you should be fine at rhat point.

S.M.A.R.T Command failed


It means that the hard disk SMART monitoring system has detected problems serious enough to warn you of the growing possibility of hard disk failure. Sometimes a drive will last quite awhile after this first notification, but there is a good chance of imminent failure, in minutes, hours, days, or weeks. You should immediately look into installing a replacement drive.

You should immediately copy any important data off the drive, perform full backups, and limit use of it.

If you can install drives yourself, a new hard disk (especially Seagates) usually come with software to clone your existing drive to the new drive. Otherwise, a repair shop will be able to do it for you.

I recommend also purchasing a drive enclosure for your old drive. For whatever life it still has, it will be a good backup of your system.
