Smart drive failed during diagnostic test

\015 I was having problems with my programs s pop up occured saying error in disk and then gave some codes so I ran the computer through a diagnostic test and it failed the hard drive at the smart drive test. Is it on its way out?\015

Answers :

Bad sectors are starting to show up on the hard drive. Thats what the smartdrive program is for, its checks the hard drive to see if there are any bad spots or potential bad spots on the platter inside of the hard drive.

It will definitely have to be replaced. Replace it with a new one and if you can't then at least replace it with a known good used one.
