    I've noticed that when I boot my PC a message appears to say that
    S.M.A.R.T. disk capability has been disabled. I've rummaged through
    settings and can't find where I can enable it. Can anyone tell me
    where the S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting
    Technology) option is tucked away?

    what kind of system board do you have? Its typically in the bios, though on
    some models it is rather hard to find.

    never heard of it...

    do you have an Advanced menu in your bios? Is there some key combination you
    need to type in, while in the bios, to see more advanced settings (gigabyte
    does this..) ?

    Actually... all you have to do is DL the manual for your board (like I did),
    and read page 23. I says HDD S.M.A.R.T. Compatability under the Advanced
    BIOS Featuers...

    Take a closer look and actually try to find the answer on your own. That is
    how most people learn.

    Thanks! Very embarrassed. Don't know how I missed it even without the manual.
