If you want to disable S.M.A.R.T. go into the bios by pressing F12/Delete/F2/F10.

SMART is a rough way of determining if your hard drive is failing. Did you replace the old drive with a brand new one? Or another old one?

Reflash the bios or clear the cmos which is probably more difficult then its worth on a laptop and then retry. You can download the updated bios via the manufacturers website then put on a usb stick and run it on boot up.

Possibly as its a mainstream laptop they locked the bios so that you can't adjust smart monitoring.

find out why your controller is crashing hdd's. disabling SMART won't fix the problem. you will just wake one days with a dead hdd. I've been there anddone that
