Googled for some info on an error I recv'd while working on a freind's pc. I am unable to get the pc to go into the bios so that I can turn off the SMART manager. Question is this, I do not hear the machine post on startup and after checking the ram it quickly goes to the screen where it informs me the HD is bad and needs to be backed up and replaced, it appears locked up as pressing any key to continue does nothing. Is the problem more than likely just the HD or possibly the mobo or other devices? thanks!
