    I've got another computer that is having some problems, I want to see if anyone can help me out. I turn on the computer and it starts to load up where it list the slave master and secondary slave master and then it gets to a part that reads:

    SMART Failure Predicted on Primary Master: Maxtor 54610H6

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

    The newer computer nowdays have a built-in diagnostic on start-up. All this is telling you is that it has detected a problem with your hard drive and there is a danger of it failing. You should still be able to go ahead and boot up (hit ENTER, etc.)
    Be aware! You are playing Russian Roulette here! That drive is going to fail soon. Go ahead and change it out.
