If you are getting Smart Errors it is telling you the drive is about to fail. Best to buy a new one. You can try running Chkdsk C: /r to correct the errors but it may not work.
I reformatted my hard drive because I was getting a SMART Hard Drive error when I started my computer. I divided my hard drive into c (600 mb), d (about 35000 mb), and e (about 35000 mb) drives. I did this because Windows wouldn't install on the first part of the drive (which I made into drive c). I tell Windows to install on drive d, but then a message comes up that says "drive c is corrupt, or not formatted properly", and that it needs to be formatted to install Windows. Obviously, (and I know that) drive c is corrupt, and it can't properly format it. Then I get a message that says "drive c is damaged or not properly connected. Setup cannot continue. Press F3 to quit."
Is there any way to fix this, or is my only option to buy an new hard drive or computer?
ps. Can I install Windows and run my computer off of an external hard drive?
thanks for your help!
