If you get Imminent Hard Drive error or SMART error during the POST in the BIOS sequence, it is clear that the Hard Drive of the Notebook is damaged and needs to be replaced.
However, to confirm this, you can check the Hard Drive of the Notebook from the Hard Drive Test utility in the BIOS.
Start or restart the Notebook and start tapping the F10 key which will take you to the BIOS Setup window.
In this, go to the Diagnostics or Tools tab using the Left or Right arrows in which you should find the Hard Drive Self Test utility.
Start the test by selecting the Utility using the Arrow keys and pressing Enter key.
This utility will take around 80 minutes to test the hard drive and if the result is fail, it is clear that the Hard Drive of the Notebook failed and needs to be replaced.

I doubt that re-installing the OS will help. Typically, prompts of drive failure mean just that. The solution is to replace the hard drive and re-install the OS.

Boot mgr error


This message usually means your "boot record" on your harddrive is corrupt due to a virus attack or harddrive failure. You will need to repair your boot record. If that doesn't solve the problem, replace your harddrive. If you don't know what this means, take it to a good computer repair shop. It's not something you want to do as a "newbie".

DST result fails


I would say this is the memory. You said that you checked the memory, and it passed, but did you download a cd called 'memtest x86' ? This will definately make sure your RAM isn't cooked. You boot off of this disc and let it go for a couple hours, it will tell you if it finds errors. Also, if it's the harddrive, you can just replace the harddrive, and then hook it up via USB and retrieve your information.

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.

ACER SMART failure


SMART means self monitoring and reporting tool, this is the option which performs certain test for the status of hard disk health, if its coming it means condition of your hard disk is not good, its better if you immediately back up your data and replace it, by the way you can also disable this warning through the bios, just disable the smart feature in hard disk

Hard Drive detects immenent failure.


If this is a brand new hard drive from a store return it for a new one. Hard drives have a built in feature called SMART. For some reason the SMART function is reading that there is something very wrong with the drive. If you have more than one hard drive installed on the system make sure SMART is detecting it on the new drive and not the older ones by unplugging the other drives from the motherboard.
