Hello I have a sony vaio laptop that I just got from a friend yesterday. Today when i got home I got a smart error stating imminent failure in hard drive 2. I downloaded HDTUNE and did a scan and everything passed except the reallocated sector count.
On doing the error check, i have errors in 9876, 10582, 10593,10875, 14727, 14838, 14996, 16903, and 17008.
Now I am not that technically inclined, but need some help from someone who knows computers :)
I am understanding that I need a new hard drive correct? and if I do how long before computer goes down with the sector count failure and the particular errors that I have mentioned above?

ANY and all help would be GREATLY appreciated :) and ty in advance for your help on this.

and welcome to the Forum

If SMART indicates a drive is failing . . it is failing. It could be 10 minutes or 10 days, but it is not long for this world If you have any data on the drive that you cherish, you should beckit up while you can.
