hard disk failure

when i boot my win7 this is the message I get before starting windows:

"SMART failure predicted on Hard Disk 0: Hitachi HTS5458628B9A358-(PM)

WARNING: Immediately back-up your data and replace your hard disk drive. A failure may be imminent.

well in my opinion SMART failure predicted on Hard Disk is the problem. fix it.
format c:\
Insert a linux CD, use "try" mode, open a console, type 'fsck', enjoy.
I had same last week, bought new hdd backed everything up and sending fucked up hdd back for a new one.
no problems found. the fuck
so its not a logical fault with the data..

next logical guess would be the temperature of the hard drive is too high?
try checking your hdd temp with speccy

seems a little high im building a game from my hdd at the moment and its only at 28 but that shouldn't be enough to set off a hardware alert really.. have you tried dusting your case and checking air flow inside over your hard drive?

my current hard drive has worse figures than that and no warnings or problems here :d
I clean my laptop on regular basis so no problem there. well seems like I'm just gonna have to buy a new one. and my warranty card just expired 2 weeks ago. awesome -.-
hmm you could back up your important files and just keep using the current one no telling how long it will actually last
SMART failure?

Pretty much means your harddrive is dying.

Had the same on my old PC, could run it for a few more weeks and then it was game over.

Get a new HDD asap so you can transfer data
Replace the harddisk jeuss
