If you bought it new then back up any files and take it back to the shop. If it's a second hand unit then you need to immediately back up to disc or pen anything you want to save. You are being warned that there is an issue with your hard drive. If this fails then you will lose all your information and computer won't fire up until you fit a new hard drive and install an operating system (if you actually have one). Once you have safeguarded your files it might be worth checking if your laptop is running too hot, which can damage a hard drive, is the fan switching on. There are programs free to download that can test the temperature.

SMART Failure Predicted on Hard Disk


The smart test is useful when giving information about the hardware performance. if you have critical files that are important, the options are, back up files using a external hard drive, a thumb drive, or a cd/dvd disc. The smart test gives a rough prediction of potential failure, the hardware may continue running for months or more, but better to be safe.

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

SmaT FAILURE PREDICTED ON HARD DISC


okay you have seen that message simply because it did not detected any hard-disk. If you know how to open your computer all you have to do is press all the wires in there it maybe dew to loose connection. then try booting it up again be sure it has a system already. If still didn't work out no other solution but to replace the hard disk.
