SMART Failure Predicted in Hard Drive 0:Fujitsu MHS2030AT- (PM)

WARNING: Immediately back-up your data and replace your Hard Drive Disk. A failure may be imminent.

Press F1 to continue.


I'm just curious how accurate is this? I've been getting this for the last month, and I've been doing back-ups every week waiting for something to happen, but nothing has...

However even if I have to replace it, my 5-year RadioShack warranty is good until November of 2006, so yea...

It's probably warning you about something like slow spin-up time. You can get monitoring programs that will give you more information such as This One which is free for home use.

FJDT (Fujitsu ATA Diagnostic Tool) 
  A diagnostic tool to help customers speedily verifiy whether their hard drive is operating correctly.

FJDT can diagnose your suspected faulty hard drive by checking the S.M.A.R.T. data and also by scanning the entire surface of the drive, sector by sector, to verify media integrity.

FJDT can be run from a bootable MSDOS diskette, which enables diagnosis even when the OS is not booting. FJDT is a quick and efficient way of diagnosing a suspect hard drive without having to disassemble your PC and remove your hard drive. This will enable you to get back online in the shortest possible time. FJDT will only perform a non-destructive test allowing your data to remain intact after diagnosis.

After running FJDT a "PASS" or "FAIL" result will be generated. A "PASS" confirms a correctly functioning drive whilst a "FAIL" confirms a fault and the necessity to contact your supplier.

A full user guide outlining diagnostic help is included in the zipped package.

Is this the correct one?

Yanowhiz...yes that is the right one

But you have to run it from DOS....you can't run it from Windows
You have to create a boot disk, boot to Dos, then run the program (you will have to copy the program onto a floppy disk) ...so you will need 2 floppies, one for DOS Boot, the other one for the program.

No, Unfortunately you can't. It has to be run in dos.

all you have to do is download the program (and unzip it if it is a zip file), the copy the file onto a Floppy disc.

Also, have a separate Floppy disc for your boot disc (to create this open My Computer, then right click on your Floppy Drive (Mine is A:\) then select Format (of course your disk that you want to format should be in the drive). Then when the Format screen comes up , select "Create MS Dos Disk".

Then boot with the disk in your computer (if you still automatically boot to windows, that means that your BIOS boot order is set to have your hard drive boot before your Floppy...if that happens simply go into BIOS and change the order so that the floppy is before the Hard Drive).

ONce you get to the A:/ Prompt. Pop out the Boot Disk and put in your other floppy with the program on it. Then type the command to run the program (if you don't know the command, just type dir ) and a list will come up of all the file names. just type the file name (I think that for this program that the file name is just FJDT , so at the A: prompt type FJDT)

That should work find for you...give it a shot and post back here if it worked or not

I don't have a floppy disk DRIVE for my laptop. Sorry I wasn't clear before.

Is it possible to make a boot-up disk on CD that boots into DOS like a floppy?

Although thats good advice you missed the part where he says

I don't have a floppy disk on my laptop. I don't even have an external floppy disk


And if he's runing windowsxp it requires 6 floppies to create a boot disk.

Yes,

Nero is the best program to do that. However prior to burning the cd, Nero requires that you copy files from the floppy start disc.

Don't you have access to a external Floppy? If not, you really should consider getting one....the days of floppy may be numbered, but in my opinion the floppy is still 100% essential in any computer setup....this is a perfect example as to why...another example is when you have to flash your Bios to upgrade it, most motherboard manufacturer companies require this be done on Floppy....

Off the top of my head, I don't know of any program that you can create a boot disk to a cd (but that doesn't mean that there isn't one....) but I would really suggest the floppy option.

What do you mean by it takes 6 floppies to create a boot disk... I have Windows 95/98 Boot disks in my basement, however since I don't have a floppy disk drive on my laptop they are kinda useless.

No, he doesn't need 6 floppies (you are thinking of the XP Boot Disks)....he just needs a DOS boot Disk. and you only need one Disk for that
