  1. Imminent hard drive failure, need help


    Hi,


    Today, I got the imminent hard drive S.M.A.R.T. failure warning. My pc is a rebranded HP Touch Smart All-in-one 23" i-7 so no help from HP. I have used Seatools and it failed. All of my data is backed up. Should I try to ID the drive before I attempt to open the pc? I would like to upgrade, if possible to SSD. It has a Pegatron motherboard and I also need to find a way to upgrade the memory as it at 4gb.


    Any recommendations? Thanks in advance.


    Brian

  2. Projected Hard drive failure issue

    I have an HP laptop that boots up to error "Smart hard drive check has detected imminent failure". I have no issue with replacing the hard drive but have no idea how to get Windows 10 reinstalled/recovered. Currently files/photos/ect. are backed up. Any
    suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    Hard drive failure

    Hi SK123

    Your drive has failed the DST (Disk Self Test) that is an indication of imminent hard drive failure . . .

    There is no point in delaying the inevitable, you should backup your data now before it is too late, then purchase a new hard drive and install everything on that drive . ..

  4. Imminent hard drive failure, need help

    Hard disk failure is imminent.

    When starting my computer I sometimes get a message that Hard Disk Failure Imminent. Please back up your hard disk and have it replaced. Press F10 for Setup. F2 to continue. The first time I got this screen it clicked on F2 and Windows opened and all
    seemed fine. Now I have the same black screen with same message but when clicking on F2, the computer does nothing. I have not back up my hard disk. What can I do to save this situation or am I just out of luck?
