  • Resetting S.M.A.R.T errors?

    Hi guys and girls!

    I just have a quick question, I'm upgrading my pc some in the car and got my hands on a old maxtor disk with 80Gb of space... since thats twice the capacity of my old one I thought I would switch!
    The problem is that at every boot I get a :
    Sec slave Hard disk: S.M.A.R.T. Command failed
    Press F4 to continue
    after pressing F4 it just goes on, I've checked the BIOS but cant find anywhere to turn it off (MB is a intel D845GBV BTW) so my last resort is to find some way of resetting the SMART info in the HDD, Any ideas?

    I was able to "kind of" fix SMART by using the software on the Matrox site.

      any hint of what the software was called, I only found one that was supposed to go on a 3.5" floppy, and I havn't used one of those for years

        That is exactly what I used: had to install a floppy drive!

        No USB application yet?
