Well what would you know, I go away on vacation with a working computer and return home to see it doesnt work!
Anyways, when I first booted it up when I came home, the first thing I got was a big black screen that mentioned something about a S.M.A.R.T. command had failed. Above that message was something about a slave drive- but I think that was working correctly. (whats a slave drive???). So I looked for instructions on it and I pressed F2.
So I got to the blue and grey screen where I could change everything and tabbed right all the over to Discard Changes and Exit.
I thought that would work but, but it didnt. It then showed SONY in big white letters and then the huge Intel Pentium 4 logo........ and then SONY....and then Intel logo!
I dont know what to do, I've tried it like 10 times.
On a Diagnostic error codes page
it says...159 SMART Error Self Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology (SMART) Error returned during SMART Status/Self Test Command. The drive is defective. Replace. Replace Drive
Is my hard drive really crashed??
PPS. I have windows XP w/ sp2 running on a sony vaio
