I recently ran a test on my laptop(N4050).It first showed me I had a SMART extended self test failure. Then I had a hardware failure message. I have attached one of the things.May I know what am I supposed to do? My warrant has expired. I appreciate any help. Thank you
Solved! Go to Solution.
Your hard drive may be failing. I would suggest you to backup data on the system. You can try following steps. Please follow the steps mentioned below and then try reinstalling the operating system.
Boot into your Windows 7 or 8 installDVD
Select repair your computer, it will fail and then select the command prompt after a few windows.
Type into command prompt (NO QUOTES)
"list disk" (enter)
find your HDD (in my case disk 0)
"select disk 0" (enter)
Note: Please backup all data from the system to perform the above steps.
Please let me know if this helps.
