SMART control of hard disk not successful

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi All, since some weeks when I strat the laptop I get an error message about SMART check of the hard disk not successful. The Error ID is RSKX33-8JFAB9-XD7X6K-60D503. By ckicking Enter the Windows starts and the pc runs apparently without problems, but I'm afraid there is some potential risk on the HD integrity.

Has any of you already experienced such an issue?

These tests are not as informative as you might hope, but this result means its time to replace the drive. You can go on sometimes for months with a drive throwing an error code and one day it just stops working and in the meantime performance degrades very slowly. Post back if you want help with the replacement and software reinstall process.
