SMART is a set of indicators of hard drive failure, when one or more of these indicators surpass certain level, the computer assumes hard disk useful life is getting to an end, follow the recommendation, back up all your important files, and use the hard disk until it's not functional anymore, then you'll have to replace the hard drive and reinstall the operative system and your backed up files.

Too bad it has to be me the one to give you this news.

SMART monitoring is a feature of some motherboards that keeps watch of several hard drive parameters. If any of these go outside of a preset range you'll get that message at startup. While this doesn't mean a hard drive failure is imminent, you should follow the advice and back up any data you don't want to lose before it's too late. It's a good habit to back up important files like digital pictures that may be impossible to replace, but far too few people do it.

Hard drive not working..unable to boot up. Get this error message : 2100: Detection error on HDD0 (Main HDD) Press Esc to continue


Please try re-seating the hard drive.

If you look at the bottom of your laptop, along the edge there should be a screw larger then all the rest which holds a small panel. Remove this screw and panel. Remove the drive pulling lightly, with steady pressure, straight out. Place the drive back in and screw the panel back.

We had a lot of these issues, and they were often solved by just this manner alone.

Let us know if we have to go any further.
Good luck

My acre aspire 5517 keeps getting a disk read error occurred and I keeps repeating it over and over what do I do?


First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

There are several possible jumper configurations on my mobo ash1 ash2 intri cmos and obr my acer aspire desktop m3100 won't boot at all I just installed a new psu & cpu


If you mean the plastic plug jumpers located on the hard drive to set master . master/slave ........
single or master :::::
master with slave ::'::
slave :::':
note the plastic jumper is ' located at the rear of the hard drive next to the IDE/SATA lead/s


The jumpers should be printed on top of the hard drive.
If its not booting at all it might be the ram or leads from motherboard to hard drive.

Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA
the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO THE HARD DRIVE make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty if its a flat 40pin ide this will be the first to fail Make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd and floppy (If Applicable) have secure connections and are not faulty. or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs power and data to travel through every working device and continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error




Restart your computer During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the Delete or F2 key this will vary depending on your computer and operating system Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart This will set the boot order If this fails you might try some of these Acer: - Ctrl+Alt+Esc

ALR PC: (F2) or (Ctrl)(Alt)Esc)

AMI BIOS: (Del), (F1) or (F2)

AST, Advantage, Award, Tandon: - Ctrl + Alt + Esc

Award BIOS: (Del) or (Ctrl)(Alt)(Esc)

A disk read error occurred


Hard drives do not like being dropped even inside a notebook. It is a sure way of destroying a hard disk.
First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

It is the Hard drive on the system. Hard Drive is failing. Another Error code for the Hard Drive is Error Code 7. Check BIOS setup if the system still detects the Hard Drive as well. You may want to consider changing the Hard Drive on the system.

About hard disk


I am assuming you got this error while trying to install Windows XP. If so, The solution to this problem will result in the LOSS OF ALL DATA ON YOUR HARD DRIVE. This is a two part process.

1) Check to make sure hard drive is seated in laptop well.
   Enter BIOS and ensure that your hard drive is detected. If not, try the auto detect feature that most BIOS' have and see if this detects your hard drive. If not, try restoring the BIOS defaults and see if that works. If not, hard drive may be bad.
   Continue to part 2.

2) Insert your Windows XP CD and boot computer from the CD and wait for setup to load.
  • At the Setup Notification screen, press Enter to continue.
  • At the "Welcome to Setup" screen, hit Enter to continue.
  • Read the Windows XP Licensing Agreement and press F8 to agree.
  • On the Xp Setup screen, you'll create an installation partition, but first some housekeeping. If you have any existing partitions you must delete all of them before proceeding.  After deleting all partitions, select "Unpartitioned space" and pressing Enter. And then press Enter again to confirm the partition size as is (it should already be set to the maximum size).
  • Next, select "Format the partition using the NTFS file system" and press Enter. Xp will now install.
If the same error appears then the hard drive is probably bad.

Hard drive controller problem


S.M.A.R.T (system monitoring)is the warning software that detects when a hard drive is about to fail, so i would back up any important docs to a disc or usb drive immediately and replace the hard drive. The hard drive controller itself will not be the problem, it's the controller saying that the problem is the drive, the controller is only a driver and not a peice of hardware, pressing F1 will ignore any faults and continue to boot, but especially if it doesnt always boot it's definately your hard drive.
