I keep getting a false error from the HDD S.M.A.R.T. feature in bios.
I know how to reach this feature in setup but it is "grayed out " so I can not access it so can not change it to "disabled".

Any ideas' on how to do this please.
Cheers,
Phil.

Look under the hdd info. Dbl click on the entry where the dd hdd appears in the BIOS. On some systems, you can disabled SMART here. Altho I dont know about an HP. I've never had one.

Or go to the HP site find the manual for it

Are you sure it's false?

SMART doesn't predict all failures but it is rarely incorrect when it does report an error.

Yes, I'm positive.

It's quite possible you would need to modify your BIOS to get the option enabled so you can change it. However it's risky. I would look at what's causing the error, and try to fix it. Even if it's a false error there will still be a cause.
