Hi everyone. I know close to nothing about laptops so thought I would ask your opinion. A couple of weeks ago I dropped my laptop (ASUS K53E) on the ground. When I restarted it, it would not load past the start up screen (kept looping back to it). A couple of days ago I finally got into system recovery and ran startup repair. Took two days and after it was complete it told me to back up and replace because the smart status has failed. What does this entail? If I buy a new hard drive, will my laptop work again? Or is this not guaranteed? Basically I just want to cover all of my bases before I pay for a new laptop. Losing my data is not a concern as I have most of my files backed up. Thanks!
