ASUS A8V-MX "S.M.A.R.T." Hard Drive Error
Posted on 2006-03-31
For the second time on this motherboard, I have had a hard drive screw up because of a S.M.A.R.T. error. The first disks status was "BAD", but I have already returned that. The problem is my 160gb Seagate SATA. It has been working perfectly for the past 3 months, but I changed some BIOS videocard settings yesterday and when I restarted, I was given a "S.M.A.R.T." error (not "status bad", but "command failed". I restored BIOS defaults, yet it still does this. When I run the BIOS setup it senses this hard drive in the drives list, but no other program does (i.e. Windows repair). I need help!
