    I need help with this..I booted up my xp this morning and on boot up got this error

    (primary master hard disc S.M.A.R.T. status bad. Warning: backup your data and replace your hard disc drive.)

    Now does this mean its bad and I need to replace it, or could something else be causing this.I have noticed lately when playing games or watching videos that the game is real laggish or it shutters alote.
    If I do have to replace my hard drive then can this be done without windows xp cd as it came already installed with no cd..
    Any advice and help would be appreciated..Thanks ..Greg Hedge
