Smart Error on Hp laptop, windows vista.

Specs: Windows vista
I have just recently turned my laptop on, and it has come up with a black screen and the Smart failure predicted on hard disk 2.
It tells me to press f1 to continue. I press this and nothing happens! I have alot of data on my laptop, important data that I somehow need to get off. So I am looking for help and suggestions on how to do so. I have alot of coursework and photos I need to retrieve. Please help!

I would try to boot to a live linux cd. It may allow you to boot and maybe use other tools like testdisk or photorec to recover files. Then attempt to fix the problem.

Smart tends to be rather dumb. It is saying there is some problem with your hard drive.

Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?
