a quick yes or no please
#1
Hello, someone has given me their laptop, running Vista, to fix, and  am currently testing various aspects of it to see if  I can determine what the cause of its misbehaviour is, enter HWinfo32. I notice in the sensor window there is a red YES under all the columns for Disk Failure. Does this mean the disk IS failing or does the YES mean there is a sensor present which detects when it is failing? I suspect it is the former, but thought it best to check here. Thank you Shy

Yes, it means that one of the disk parameters has crossed the critical threshold, so the disk might be approaching a failure.
For more details check the main window - disk information - S.M.A.R.T. status.
