Question about Toshiba Computers & Internet
My sons laptop froze up so he switched it off and on again and as it loaded up vista again said there was error and restarted itself and continued in this loop until i put in the recovery disc (GMR400705EN0) supplied with laptop and held F12 on start up everything seemed to be proceeding well it explained that it would completely wipe all data on the hard drive so I went ahead with it until it crashed at 12% and said hit any key to continue when I did this all I got was a blank toshiba screen. I started again and this time it got as far as 60% then the same thing happened only now when I switch on the laptop it say 'smart failure predicted on hard disk 4 toshiba MK8037GSX-(S1) warning :imediately back-up your data and replace your hard disk drive A failure may be imminent press F1 to continue. So have you any ideas as to what the problem is and will I need to replace his hard disk drive as the laptop is just over a year old and hasn't been used much?
If you have had the laptop less than a year they should replace it, but the MK8037GSX drive is not a good drive. So, to avoid this issue in the future, i would suggest replacing with an aftermarket one such as:
Western Digital Scorpio Black WD1600BEKT 160GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Notebook Hard Drive - Retail
You get a better drive and more storage.
