What do i do, my computer keeps saying a smart event has ocurred and that my hard disk may fail
Nothing you can do, I'm afraid.
Backup all your files and get a new hard drive.
The S.M.A.R.T. system is pretty accurate.
mind sharing the brand of the HDD, and its age
and like the above, your pretty much done for it, back up all your stuff, and get a new HDD.
I've seen HDs fail in one month old PCs. There's nothing you can do. Backup EVERYTHING as soon as possible, and wait for it to die completely. Then get a new HD.
as others have said, backup everything, buy a new hard drive, and thank whatever deity you worship that you actually had a warning.
From experience, Fuck Seagate!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have a 250GB+500GB setup. both of which died within a month of each other (250GB was 1 1/2 years old, 500GB (my second one) was about 5 monthes).
I'm going to go WD after this!!!!!
I had tried a few of thoose back when hard drives where monsters. I did 2 that stand out in my mind. I froze one it did nothing. I also took the top plate off of one and stuck it back in that one worked just long enuff to get the data I needed off it.
Oh and I had one makeing an awful sound once and giveing read errors. Tried everything took it out and put it in 30 times. The last time I just slammed it down on my desk and walked off came back later stuck it in and it worked for another year and a half.
uTorrent threw CRC errors at me, so I did chkdsk /r & found about 13 bad sectors.
Does that mean my HDD is on the way to the grave?
Not really. More like a corrupt filesystem. Nothing more.
still using my computer the drive has not died yet.
the external i put everything on is work now through its a 1tb simple tech i think it may of got hot while backing my data up any advice on what to do that drive had everything on it.
Maybe google some hard drive health tools and see what they say?
