  1. About last week my comp crashed to the bootup screen and said

    Pri master hard disk S.M.A.R.T stats BAD backup and replace
    CPU fan error
    Press f1 to continue

    I can format, it always crashes or gets an error. (formatting with NFTS) (not quick)

    Is this just my HD's problem?

    Yes. S.M.A.R.T. is telling you that HDD is getting ready to fail...backup what you can and replace the drive.
    If it's still under warranty write down the error codes the manuf will need them to ship you a new drive.
