Compaq Evo N800v w/XP Pro gives the following message during boot;
1720-SMART Hard Drive detects imminent failure (Failing Attr:02). If I ignore, it boots up and I log on normally (even the screeen, but then after a while it goes black and I have the SMART message...
If I do a HDD Self-Test in ROM, it does Test 1(quick) to 90 % complete it stops, and comes out with "Error:Read failure"
If I choose ROM based Setup, and try to restore defaults, nothing changes.
So any help would be greatly appreciated... please.... :S
