dcc 88 Posting Virtuoso

I recantly had some problems and wound up reformating, and afterwards the POST would stop and give me the following message: Pri Master Hard Disk: S.M.A.R.T. Status BAD, Backup and replace. I'm using the computer now, and haven't had a hickup since I reformated, does this message mean that I will have a hdd failure?
