As the HP manual indicates, you should not remove ink cartridges once they are installed. As ridiculously expensive as the ink is, the bigger issue with long-term non-use is the printhead. They can get clogged to an extent that they require heavy-duty cleaning outside of the printer or replacement. That's one drawback of inkjets--you have to keep using ...

Wikipedia's list of known SMART attributes lists 0xB8 as End-to-End error / IOEDC described as: This attribute is a part of Hewlett-Packard's SMART IV technology, as well as part of other vendors' IO Error Detection and Correction schemas, and it contains a count of parity errors which occur in the data path to the media via the drive's cache RAM. (I ...

I assume this is for an HP computer as B8 is a special firmware revision change for Seagate drives. Basically it monitors the data from the point it is loaded into the HDD cache and travels to the Host controller. If the checksum does not match then an error will occur which is recorded in this attribute. This means two things.. The cache on you HDD's PCB ...

Your #197 attribute of 19 pending sectors indicates that the drive has a hardware problem that is has been unable to resolve. The standard HDAT2 Read and repair bad sectors should fix that. However any number >2 is grim. These unhandled errors are usually disk surface related. I suggest that Ubuntu is OK because it is in a clear (healthy) area of the disk. ...

Unfortunately, it looks like your hard drive is failing. My advice will be to run the WD's Data Lifeguard Diagnostics to see if the same results appear: http://support.wdc.com/product/download.asp?groupid=810&sid=3&lang=en In case it shows that the drive test failed, then back-up the information from the drive and if it's still under warranty - RMA ...

The hard drive is failing. The SMART report values are out of norms for a healthy hard drive. I recommend replacing the hard drive immediately. A hard drive with read / write problems can make any operating system very sluggish.

Step Zero: Where are you that a store is allowed to sell a 'new' computer' with a 'recertified' drive? Well, if Ubuntu runs OK (except for the file transfer issue), but Windows 7 halts, I would suggest you do consider it as a Windows problem. However, I would first suggest rebooting, pressing {F8} to enter Safe Mode, and run the SMART test again, and post ...

What's the difference between the 'value' and the 'raw value'? For example Attribute 12 is "power cycle count": how many times has the disk been powered up. Each Attribute has a "Raw" value, printed under the heading "RAW_VALUE", and a "Normalized" value printed under the heading "VALUE". [Note: smartctl prints these values in base-10.] In the ...

Nothing is completely impossible, but this is as close to impossible as it gets. The S.M.A.R.T. system, both the testing program and the tracked data, are stored on the disk's controller. The motherboard is literally just passing the data that the hard drive reports to it. You should be able to move the disk from one system to another and retrieve the ...

No. If the drive reports (drive internally) reallocated sectors (which is detected by the drive and done complete internal to the drive) then it is not a problem with the motherboard. That is not to say that a bad motherboard, a broken chipset or a poor cable can not produce errors. Just not these kind of errors.

No. SMART attributes are completely managed by the disk itself. While software used for reading these attributes might interpret them incorrectly, there’s nothing to interpret about your values. The disk was toast and the motherboard isn’t the culprit. What a defective motherboard might cause is (more or less) silent data corruption. When this happens the ...

The behavior you're experiencing appears to be the drives disconnecting from the system, reconnecting when the system hard resets the SATA link. You might want to make sure your cables are undamaged, clean, and properly seated in the motherboard ports and drives. If this doesn't help, it may be a bug in the operating system or a problem with your SATA ...

The data attribute is the RAW value stored by the disk, which has not been interpreted in any way. they reflect binary data, that may mean different things on different drives. SMART analysis tools make assumptions about the data value when the convert the raw value into the Current and Worst values for analysis and display. Sometimes the data value 0x00 ...

I would suggest that you don't enclose the entire printer. Just get the ink-carts out. Then, you can follow this guide from HP Storing Opened Cartridges and Printheads If opened supplies must be stored outside of the product, place them (nozzles up) in a plastic tub with an airtight lid. Some cartridges have an orange cap that is twisted off ...
