    I have a Maxtor 120 gb. harddrive and upon bootup I get a message on the black bootup screen stating that HDD S.M.A.R.T. capability is disabled. I checked CMOS and didn't see a way to enable it. What exactly is HDD S.M.A.R.T. anyway and should I enable it if I can figure out how to do it?

    Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology, It informs you if your hdd is having problems, myself i would enable it, but its up to you

    The reason a diamond shines so brightly is because it has many facets which reflect light.

    Thanks for the link! I think I'll stick to performance over running software in the background, since my bios does not have the option.

    Any idea how to eliminate that black screen upon boot-up?
