Hey, I got a brand new computer, and I noticed it was hanging quite a bit, and that the Windows Installation was a tad slow also
Now, I've just received a pop up saying Windows has detected a hard disk problem
What should I do?
In the event log, under critical it says
Windows Disk Diagnostic detected a S.M.A.R.T. fault on disk WDC WD5000AAKS-00M9A0 ATA Device (volumes C:\). This disk might fail; back up your computer now. All data on the hard disk, including files, documents, pictures, programs, and settings might be lost if your hard disk fails. To determine if the hard disk needs to be repaired or replaced, contact the manufacturer of your computer. If you can't back up (for example, you have no CDs or other backup media), you should shut down your computer and restart when you have backup media available. In the meantime, do not save any critical files to this disk.
Just received the message again, this time I managed to take a screenshot
