hard drive smart check failed

The electronics on the disk-drive have 'S.M.A.R.T'.

SMART does real-time monitoring of many characteristics of the disk-drive, e.g.,

* how many milli-seconds from "off" to "ready",

* maximum temperature,

* number of hours of usage,

* number of "bad" sectors that have been mapped to some "spare" sectors,

* and so on.

 

So, a "SMART failure" is an indication that the "observed" values have exceeded the "normal" values, i.e., "out-of-range".

 

Take the notice as a warning that your disk-drive is "dying".

 

Google-search for 'download SPECCY free'.

Download, install, and run it, to look at all the measurements in the SMART categories.

 

Make a "backup" of your files/music/pictures/bookmarks onto an external disk-drive,

or buy a brand-new disk-drive, connect it, and "clone" your current disk-drive onto the new disk-drive,

and reconfigure your computer to boot from the new disk-drive.

 

Is your disk-drive relatively "new", e.g., less than 2 years old?

If so, it may still be warrantied by the manufacturer,

i.e., ship them your disk-drive, and they will ship you an *EMPTY* replacement drive.

You'll need to reinstall Windows, and reload your files from your "backup".
