Default Ultra DMA Mode-5 S.M.A.R.T.

Ultra DMA Mode-5 S.M.A.R.T.
Capable but disabled

^Does anyone know what that means and how to fix it? My other computer says that and does not run past checking master/slave primary/secondary. I cannot even get into the BIOS. When it gets there, the screen clears and then its a blinking cursor in the upper left. Then it just stops, I cannot do anything at this point except for restart. Does anyone know how I can fix this?
