SMART Hard Disk Error Windows 10
I was in the middle of playing a game on the laptop when what I assume was the drive making a noise similar to those musical floppy drive videos (Floppotron) The computer soon crashed and directed me to a black screen that said:
"SMART Hard Disk Error
The SMART Hard Disk check has detected an imminent failure. To ensure not data loss, please backup the content immediately and run the Hard Disk Test in system diagnostics."
The problem is that when I attempt to run the test it tells me:
"No hard drive installed. Please check that the power and data cables are connected properly."
I have no idea how to do that, and if it will help at all. I need step-by-step instructions.
