I replaced a failed WD HDD with a new WD HDD. How do I reset Dell S.M.A.R.T. startup warning?

My WD HDD went bad. I replaced it with WD HDD, but am still getting the SMART message on startup that the drive “has a parameter out of specs, etc-etc-etc.Press F1 to continue - etc.etc.” Eventually W10 starts up. The MB is Dell. How can I “reset” the SMART monitor. I do not want to just disable that startup feature.

Can anyone help?

Thank you,

I recommend you post this in Dell’s support forum.


Also, Maybe another user has experience with this and can share some ideas with us.
