Hi there,
Smart Disk Error has something to do with the Hard drive of your computer. I think the reason it's showing the message is that your Hard drive is about to fail. If restoring it to factory settings freezes on the same point every time chances are that part of the hard where the data is stored is busted (unreadable) better do what it says to contact hp so that they can conduct hardware diagnostics on your hard drive. Better yet, have it replaced if it's still under warranty.
Hope this helps!

Start up disk for aspire 5336


Whoa. yOU TRIED TO do what? Oh boy, now you\'re in a pickle. My suggestion to you would be to try the Factory restore again, and THIS time have it erase the previous operating system and not SAVE any settings or ANYTHING. SOmetimes, as with ACER, and WITH ACER....Doing a Factory Restore when trying to save your OLD data will corrupt the new install 70 percent of the time. My suggestion and my STRONG suggestion is to do the Factory Restore and to WIPE out the old data and let the Acer Recovery Manager walk you through the rest. The Restore Partition has ALL of the drivers and things that you will need to get the Laptop back up and running again.

Need too restore to factory


The HP Mini laptop comes with either the Windows 7 or Windows Vista operating system.
You can restore the HP Mini to its factory settings using the laptop's recovery partition.
Restoring the HP Mini to its original factory settings will get rid of hard to eliminate viruses on the laptop's hard drive.
A factory restoration is also a good way to get rid of older files still stored on the computer that you no longer need and start with a clean slate.

Windows Vista
Click "Start" in the lower-left corner of your HP Mini Windows Vista home screen, then type "Recovery" into the Search box at the bottom of the Start menu. Click "Recovery Manager" in the list of options that appears above the Search box. The HP Recovery Manager will open. Click "Advanced Options" and then "System Recovery." Click "Next." Your HP Mini will restart. The HP Recovery Manager will open up automatically after the restart is complete. Click "System Recovery," and then click "Next." Click "No" if a message pops up on your screen asking if you want to use Microsoft System Restore. Select "Recover without backing up your files," and then click "Next." The restoration process begins. This could take between 30 and 90 minutes, depending on the of your hard drive and how much information you have stored on it. The HP Mini will restart when the laptop has been restored to its original factory settings, and you will be prompted to set up Windows Vista. Windows 7
Click the "Start" icon in the lower-left corner of your HP Mini Windows 7 home screen. Click "All Programs" and then click "Recovery Manager." Click "Recovery Manager" again to open the HP Recovery Manager program. Click "System Recovery" from the list of options beneath the "I need help immediately" section on the left side of the program. The HP Mini will automatically restart and open the HP Recovery Manager. Click "System Restore," and then click "Next." Click "No" if a message pops up on your screen asking if you want to use Microsoft System Restore. Select "Recover without backing up your files," and then click "Next." The restoration process could take between 30 and 90 minutes, depending on the of your hard drive and how much information you have stored on it. The HP Mini will restart when the laptop has been restored to its original factory settings, and you will be prompted to set up Windows Vista.

I have a toshiba A215-S7437 and i get the error message read disk error when trying to boot up


A disk error is a fatal error on the hard drive, SMART monitoring will show you this in the BIOS, restoring to factory settings will not cure it.
You need to get a new hard disk and reinstall your OS

I'm lookin to restore my hp netbook to factory settings. I tried to system restore and it wasn't allowed.


if you want to do the factory default setting then you need to install the operating system with the help of recovery cd's.

if you have the recovery cd's you need to connect the usb external cd/dvd drive to the computer.

if you don't have the recovery cd's you can get it from www.hp.com or you can call hp telephone support they will help you out.

My 0xc000000c "Restore Failed" prompt seemed to be the result of disk surface damage on the restore disk. After burning the restore disk to a new disk, the restore proceeded normally. Try making a copy of the original restore disk to a known good blank disk.

Reset factory default HP Mini 1035NR PC Notebook


SMART measures physical attributes of the hard drive. Reformatting won't help that. A bad SMART status alone doesn't mean your drive is failing, but combined with the delayed writing failures and the slow speed, I'd replace it ASAP.
