Hello to all,

I have 2 laptops both are TOSHIBA Satellite M55-S325.

Some times back i switched the HDD and everything went fine, windows started normally. I did it for one day

only just to test something then switched them back to their original places...

Yesterday i started laptop 1, a "SMART FAILURE PREDICTED ON HARD DISK 0: TOSHIBA

MK1032GAXA WARNING: IMMEDIATELY BACKUP YOUR DATA AND REPLACE YOUR HARD DISK

DRIVE. A FAILURE MAY BE IMMINENT" message was showing whenever i start the laptop..

So what i did, i took the HDD from laptop 2 and replaced it in laptop 1, BUT the message is still coming up

with this HDD...

so i thought both HDD are about to go with the wind.. i went to the computer market and bought a new HDD

(TOSHIBA) and when i replaced it in laptop1, i got the same message.. so i thought there is something

wrong with the new HDD, i went and got it changed, went back with another new HDD, got it installed in the

laptop and the bad news is i got the same message...

I tried 4 HDDs, 2 of them were brand new.. 4 HDD can not be all failing... there must be something else..

Please help me in this issue..

Any thought will be appreciated.

Thank you,

Yazen
