I run Windows XP Professional on a Dell laptop Inspiron 8200.
S.M.A.R.T. is disabled. I tried to enable it by going to the BIOS: NOTHING there. In order to enable SMART the Microsoft web site provides smartvsd.vxd files but not for Windows XP.
Also the file should be put in the directory iosubsys that unfortunately does NOT exists in Windows XP.
Any help welcome.
