CentOS and Dell GX200 and BIOS utilities

Postby ggreaves » Fri Nov 18, 2005 2:44 pm

I got a message when rebooting my pc that said the "dell bios detected that the hardrive is operating outside its parameters..." or something like that. I've seen this some where before but cannot remember why it happens. Can anyone refresh my memory? :?:

Sounds like SMART disk monitoring to me... it thinks your drive is likely to fail in the near future. Time to make sure you've got decent backups & check the prices of new hard drives.
Hope this helps,

Nigel.
