Wondering if you could possibly help me with my Acer, basically I had a power cut whilst my computer was on, and since then, on boot up (it doesn't actually boot anymore) it displayed the following:
"There is an error in the SMART detection Press F1 to continue or DEL to enter setup"
At first, it would boot up, and everything worked. Then it stopped, and now I get:
"Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected device and press a key"
I can see a HDD in the BIOS, so I'm hoping that I don't need a new HDD, and I've just lost a boot file or something? I've read about a UEFI or something similar, but have never used one. Ideally, I'm trying to avoid having to format the HDD as there are files that I need on it.
Any help would be great thanks
