Sounds like your hard drive is about to pack up. You can disable SMART for your hard drive in your CMOS setup. which will allow you to boot up your pc. I suggest you back-up all your data as soon as possible before the hard drive fails completely.

SOURCE: i replaced a new hdd and still showing 1720-smart hard drive detects imminent failure

There is a chance you received a new bad hard drive. I've seen this with server drives, but never at desktop level. I would not accept, but HP might ask you to do some testing or load an update. I forget. Good Luck replacing again

I get a 1720 Smart Hard drive detects imminent failure (Failing Attribute: B8) error on my HP EliteBook 6930p which has a Seagate hard rive


It means that the Seagate hard drive is near death. Backup all your data immediately, create a recovery cd starting from the recovery partition situated on your disk (if you haven't done this before or you weren't provided one when you bought it), replace the hard drive and reinstall.

Smart thinks that the hard drive is in fact failing, so you need to copy all your files to CD/DVD/USB key/External Hard drive, and then replace the internal hard drive and reinstall the system.
Having said that smart has been known to continue putting up this warning for lengthy periods, so it is possible that the drive will continue for some time. If you want to risk it, just continue to use the existing drive until it fails and back up all important files as they are created.
