Re: a problem with hard drive has been detected...
SMART is Self Monitoring and Reporting Technology - designed to give you an indication of impending hard drive failure. Some of the values monitored by SMART are not critical, others are. Depending on which of the SMART parameters are causing the issue, it may be exactly what it is designed to be, a message that allows you to backup your data and replace the drive before it fully fails. The critical smart values are not repairable.
