This morning I booted up my laptop only to get a black DOS-like screen with the following message:
"1720-S.M.A.R.T. Hard Drive detects imminent failure. Please back up the contents of the hard drive and run HDD self test in F10 setup."
The only options I have from there are to shut down or press F1 to ignore. I haven't tried pressing F1 or running the self test because my data is not backed up and I do not want to lose everything. Please help ASAP! I use this computer *a lot* throughout the day.
PS-In case it gives you any more info, I recently had asked a different question about the laptop that is having troubles here: http://www.geekstogo...ly-t265360.html
