Some older machines had fan control setting in the BIOS Setup. You might take a look there and see if you can spot any setting related to fans or fan speeds.

You can drag the speedfan icon into the startup folder and it will start with Windows, but won't actually take control of the fans until it finishes loading. Usually a machine automatically runs the fans on high until Windows takes over.

Normally, SMART can be turned on or off in the BIOS Setup.

What did you test the drive with?

It depends on the manufacturer.

If it's a Maxtor or Seagate drive: Seatools

If its Western Digital: Data Lifeguard

I would take the warning seriously and make sure your data is safely backed up. That's a good practice even if the drive is good. that said, I've seen drives run for months after displaying that error...I've also seen drives fail within hours of the warning. Definitely not something you want to see popping up.
