Hi,

 

The Smart error code would indicate that the Hard Drive is starting to fail and should be replaced.  If you'd like a guide on this, please let me know.

 

Regards,

I was afraid that was the answer.  Guess I'll start making a system image to put on my new hard drive.

I'd like to get guidance on what type of disk I should consider.  I also got the SMART Self Test Failure error.

 

Any thoughts would be helpful
