[Notebook] S.M.A.R.T Error warning for SATA HDD

1. When BIOS detects SMART Error from SATA HDD, it shows the following warning message in POST:

“S.M.A.R.T Status Bad, Backup and Replace. Press F1 to Resume…”

2. Pressing F1 can skip this warning then allow you to enter the OS. But if this error cannot be fixed, it will show the warning message at every reboot unless you disable the "SMART SELF TEST" in BIOS setup menu.

**Suggestion:Seeing this message means that your HDD may fail soon. Please back-up your data and replace the HDD or install HDD monitoring software as a precaution.



How to disable the "SMART SELF TEST" in BIOS Setup (Not recommended!)

1. Press F2 to enter BIOS setup menu

2. Advanced--->SMART Settings--->SMART Self Test" --->OFF. (Default setting is "ON")
