JP,

SMART
Some BIOS offer this option to enable or disable a hard disk's SMART capability. SMART stands for Self Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology. It is used to detect and report impending disk problems. Some utilities use this technology to make disk diagnostics

The above is correct if you like for it to say enabled. Goto BIOS setup and usually under andvanced settings you can enable SMART.

You've been advised about the meaning, and some recourse to check your BIOS, I'd only add this:  When your system first boots, you can depress the PAUSE button to read the onscreen information as to BIOS date, version as well as what key to depress to access your BIOS (sometimes DEL, sometimes F1, depends).  If you have a manual for your motherboard, it'll likely include details on the BIOS setup and meaning to expound further.

It is probably the problem of BIOS setting for Hard Driver.
I have met same problem before, at that time, I specify the wrong parameters for the Hard Disk in BIOS.
Change to Auto (Most current BIOS have this option).
Hope this would help!

Asta;

In case you are not aware of the symbols which can be made using the numeric keypad, try holding the ALT key as you press the num keys, always starting with a zero and adding 3 other num keys, EG; zero 169 and release the ALT key produces ©.  Using () and ^ makes faces.  EG; (°±°)

Glenn;

My available point total has not diminished.  There were five other answers, at 50 points each, the total should have been reduced by 250.
