Re: bios update

If you are getting Smart failures you may have a Hard drive failing. It appears to be a Western Digital Drive. Go to there site and download the diagnostics and run them. see what comes up it may be your HD is on the way to dieing

Re: bios update

You can disable the SMART notifications in the BIOS setup. Though that will be ignoring the impending death of your hard drive.
