Having problems with your HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook ?

Hassled by SMART warning

\015 I'm contacting you on behalf of my teenage daughter who bought a Pavilion dv6000 **tebook less than a year ago. It was recommended as being ideal for playing her "World Of Warcraft" game at which she scores very highly. Recently on booting up she got the S.M.A.R.T warning re a faulty HDD. We can't stretch to a new drive just **w, so have to try to bypass the **tice and boot into Vista. Once there her PC works just fine. I have made a backup of all her data so if the HDD does conk out I'll have to shout her a new one and install a new copy of Vista. Problem is it's a major hassle trying to bypass the warning **tice. Just pressing F1 doesn't seem to work. I've looked into the BIOS to see if it's possible to disable the SMART thingie but her BIOS has ** facility to do this. It is a Phoenix F.22. In the Setup there is ** "Advanced" menu. Strange. Warranty? She bought the PC in Sydney, Australia and **w lives with me in New Zealand. Any expert thoughts would be really appreciated.\015

Well..you might be able to do a safe mode start, and do some disk maintenance..use F8 and see if that gets you to the Vista light screen, and allows for some disk work.
