    Hello,
    Whenever i turn on the laptop, the laptop opens with an warning message, "SMART failure predicted on Hard Disk 0: WDC WD3200BEVT-752CT2- (S1)
    WARNING: Immediately backup your data and replace your hard disk drive. A failure may Be imminent." and it tells me to press "F1 button to continue" but nothing works even after pressing "F1" button. It just shows the windows loading logo. Plz help me coz i got some important data in my hard disk. :(

    Lets hope it hasnt totally failed if so it will be very expensive to recover anything worth saving.

    Chin up, the fact that the SMART is still working and the fact that the computer shows the Windows logo are both good news: you hard drive definitely hasn't completely died. However, some data will probably be lost for good, fingers crossed it's not much of it.

    As soon as you hit the power on button, start tapping the F8 key.

    Keep tapping it repeatedly without interruption until the options menu screen appears.

    Select Safe Mode and then keep your fingers crossed and hope that Windows loads.

    Once the computer settles down from the start-up, you can hopefully recover your personal data.

    You didn't say what type and how much personal data you want to recover, so that may have a bearing on how successful you are.
