It depends on the actual wording of the error message, but generally it usually means the hard drive is nearing failure and should be replaced as soon as possible.

Confirmation (or otherwise) can be obtained by testing the drive with non-Windows version of diagnostic software such as SeaTools:

SMART errors have nothing to do with the battery or charger, that was just a coincidence.

Hi PC,

with such queries, you need spend time and provide full details asto what happened.

e.g how do you use the Laptop by unplugging the charger?

From the 'sparse' details provided, I wonder if no battery or a dead battery was fitted, and disconnecting the Charger just switched off the Laptop, which may then have corrupted something on the HD.

Good Luck - Keep us posted.

✔ Best Answer
S.M.A.R.T. errors are raised by error-checking hardware in the drive itself. They mean the drive is failing and should be replaced as soon as possible. If I understand correctly you bought this computer recently. Return it to the vendor for repair or a refund.

Since this is your 1st time posting & the OS is listed as WinXP, is it a used laptop?
