Good evening, this problem continue always worst...
what I realize is that if I reboot without swithing off the power
works eveytime. If I shutoff than I've to start trying 20-30 times...
where can I try to do something? difficult to live like this...
*since one year, my asus L8400B laptop has a strange problem: at boot
*says that SMART indicates imminent failure and the boot stops.
*impossible to disable smart feature from the BIOS. month after month
*the problem happens much more often, sometimes needing to restart
*20-30 times to make the system start. indcation is false, because
*disabling the smart support with the harddrive utility it happens
*anyway, and also it happens with different disks. when it happens
*floppy and cd-rom are not detected by the bios.
*I suppose it's a motherboard problem.
*any similar behaviour?
Re: false SMART indication.
I would try a different hard drive to see if it also displays the problem.
If not, then there is probably something wrong with the SMART reporting in
the hard drive. If it does, then there is something wrong with the
motherboard's detection of this. You may see if there is a newer BIOS for
the motherboard or try reflashing the current BIOS (if it is the newest) in
case it got corrupted somehow.
