I have a PC running Win2kpro. During initial startup I get this error message followed by "Press F1 to resume". If I press F1 the PC boots normally, and appears to operate normally. I have searched for this error message and all I can find is an Intel reference to adding this message during POST, but no mention of what it means. Any ideas?

Dear garfoote,

I assume SMART refers to a SMART board that is connected to your machine using USB.

Check if you have any connected device


Thanks,

S.M.A.R.T is a technology that checks your hard disk for certain errors. When it reports and error then there is probably something wrong with the hard disk.

I would recommend that you back up anything important on that disk as soon as possible, because a SMART warning is a sign that something is happening to your hard disk that shouldn't be.  Then I would replace the drive before it fails completely.

Check your bios settings, I had an older board would also pause on POST when SMART was set to auto, setting it to enabled removed the F1 to resume message. I think the above message is just telling you your drive is SMART enabled.
I don't have that board anymore so can't check the message but I think its the same, the newer boards I have just have enable/disable.
