Your SMART is OK.
You don't have: RAW Read Errors, Reallocated Sectors, Offline Uncorrectable is 0, also I don't see other errors in this SMART. I'd say your disk is health but if your HD temp reach 51C - it's not good. I don't know the reason, just remember to do not work on you notebook in bed, the laptop should stand on the table because airflow.

I almost forgot.
Maybe other application non-stop using your HD check this.
Menu start > enter RESMON in search field
In new window check the tab DISK.

Most all prebuilt system's i've seen with failing(overheating) hd's, the HD's are mounted on their sides/front, instead of bottom, this causes them to heatup faster, stay hot longer, and eventually die much sooner. A properly installed drive might last a steady 5-10 yrs, an improperly installed drive on its side (of the exact same model) might get 3 max. There arent many drives specifically made to be mounted on their side/front..

check the case for airflow around the hd, if its sitting in an enclosed area the ambiant tempature will eventually start baking it.

On your SMART I see:
Airflow Temperature is 45C
but on your screen from HDTune is 49C
Did you do SMART and printscreen in the same time?

It is really strange... when did you observe that HD temp is so high? When you bought brand new laptop the HD temp was lower or the same?

My hard drive is located in the back-right, right next to the 12-Cell Battery. I could not say its the most.. air-flow-efficient but the bigger battery lifts it up in the rear giving better air-flow.

Also Fedora 11 claims I have a failing hard drive (failed to respond to SMART tests, but anything thats not Fedora based doesn't say its failing). :S
If SMART is not enabled in the bios you will get that warning.

Also I think that the drive temp is fine. I have a RaptorX 150Gb sitting on my desk on it's side right now hooked up through an SATA to USB kit and it gets hot enough to in some places to burn your fingers if you touch it. I attached coolers to both my RaptorX drives because of the high heat they generate.

Its a HP Laptop. They pretty much put the BIOS in lockdown.

SMART is enabled in BIOS though, unable to be changed. My guess is its a driver thing with Fedora based distro's. Since Fedora also hates my WIFI why shouldn't it hate my hard drive either?
