If I hit enter to contunue with start up it does fine. I've tested several times with same results. I've ran the disk check from properties on my hard drive C and comes back fine. I need no defragmenting. With the exception of the SMART disk utility I have no signs things are bad.
I updated bios, as well as the hdd utility and still same SMART disk black screen on startup until I press enter to proceed past it. The laptop is exactly 28 days out of waranty. I'm using about 60g of a 500 gig hdd.
Please let me know what my error is, how to fix it, and why I would need to replace a hard drive that's a year and 28 days old.
