When I start my computer up. I see the following message:

ASUS SABERTOOTH 277 ACPI BIO Revision 1504

USB Device total: 0 Drive, 1 keyboard, 1 mouse, Hubs
Detected ATA/ATAPI Devices...
SATA Port: Optiarc DVD RW AD-7200S
Port 6: ST3500630AS
S.M.A.R.T Status Bad, Backup or Replace
Press F1 to Run Setup

What does this mean?

This means that the hard drive is about to fail. S.M.A.R.T is a utility that monitors the health of the hard drive and reports any potential problems, like an early warning system. When it says "S.M.A.R.T Status Bad" This is not a good thing. Does it give you an option to bypass and get to Windows? If so backup your important data.
