Hello community, this is my first post here. Im having a problem with my HD (WDC WD2500AAJS-22RYA0): simple it wont boot. If I turn off the computer and wait for a couple of minutes it boots. What could be the reason for such behaviour?
Last year I had some power failures at home (electricity outgages -power downs) could be affected my power source?
thanks in advance for any suggestion/tips.
The following is a report given by running SpeedFan program in windows XP:
Almost every EIDE or SATA hard disk includes S.M.A.R.T. data. That information is collected by the drive itself and contains data that the manufacturer considered relevant to check reliability. The data is made up of several attributes that have a current value, a worst one, a threshold, some raw data, and some flags. Basically, when any attribute’s current value is below its threshold, the hard disk is considered unreliable and likely to fail. By using several techniques, this report tries to give a wider range of info, basing its analysis on advanced comparisons with normal values based on real hard disks and on expert-like checks. The final results are not to be taken as an absolute truth, but they are a very good approach to what a professional would say about your hard disk status. Your hard disk is a WDC WD2500AAJS-22RYA0 with firmware 12.01B01. The average temperature for this hard disk is 35C (MIN=26C MAX=44C) and yours is 44C. Your hard disk’s S.M.A.R.T. attributes are now being analyzed and a full report about the reliability, health and status of your hard disk is generated: Your hard disk is not below any attribute threshold. This is good. Your hard disk was never below any attribute threshold. This is good. Your hard disk is now being compared to real data used to define normal values for your specific hard disk model. This way, the analysis can automatically use proper operating ranges. The images give you an idea of how each attribute is within such range. Current and raw values are shown for easier reference for experienced users. There are 2684 hard disk models in the current archive.
|Raw Read Error Rate||200||0||Very good|
|Spin Up Time||166||4691||Good|
|Start/Stop Count||100||961||Very good|
|Reallocated Sector Count||200||0||Very good|
|Seek Error Rate||200||0||Very good|
|Power On Hours Count||95||3779||Good|

All of the attributes of your hard disk have normal values. This is good.
