We are operating a Gateway computer with XP. When we boot the computer up, a black screen pops up stating American Megatrends 3rd Master Hard Disk: S.M.A.R.T. Status BAD, Backup and Replace. Press F2 to Resume. Once you press F2, it takes you to a Blue screen stating CMOS Setup Utility. There are several choices on this screen to choose from. When you try to exit it goes right back to the initial screen. Does any one know what causes this and how to fix?

You have a failed hard drive and that's your bios telling you so! You need to replace the faulty hard drive with a new one!
