@jaredlacey8181 sounds like your computer can't access the OS on the drive. Could be a drive failure. I'd start with changing the BIOS to a different boot order and set it to either optical drive or USB and then insert a bootable disk (or USB drive ) and see if that works. If your BIOS sees the failed drive, you can try and reinstall the OS. If it does not, replace the drive.

SMART failure means that the performance of the hard drive is degrading. It is a warning to give you time to back up the data before the hard drive dies completely. The SMART feature of the hard drive is a group of characteristics that are involved with read/write speed, disk speed and other aspects of performance. You may get this message for weeks or even months, but it is still a good idea to back up your data to another location and prepare to replace the hard drive.
