Enabling S.M.A.R.T. monitoring of HDD's

HP Recommended
HP elite (Model HPE-519c )
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have an older (10 years?) HP PC that I am trying to monitor the HDD's. I have 4 internal HDD's and software that I am using (CrystalDisk among others) doesnt even "see" the HDD's. In various forums Ive been given the advice to turn on HDD S.M.A.R.T. monitoring in BIOS. But there is no such setting.

When the PC boots up normally there is a splash screen that shows S.M.A.R.T. but it disappears so quickly I cant see what it says.

How do I configure this PC to allow me to monitor S.M.A.R.T. information of my internal HDD's?

If your HDs support SMART you can run the SMART tests from the BIOS by clicking on the HD and then select which test to run.


Alternatively, you can check SMART status from the command prompt by entering:



diskdrive get status, size, model


Additionally, I suggest that you run the chkdsk command from the command prompt if one or more of your drives have an issue.  Please review this information.


Lastly, if you still continues to have issues witha particular hard drive then you should consider replacing it.
