hi there, i've been looking information about this situation but i have not found the solution.
this is the problem.
the BIOS detects my hard disk but shows that error "3rd. Master HArd Disk Error" so i found in a page, that this error look like mbr is damaged, and i can't see the S.M.A.R.T information, and i downloaded the seatools but every test doesn't work.
can anyone help me

Welcome to the forums ronaldo.
The error you described could be caused by a variety of things really, one of them being the MBR I suppose (to be truthfull, i've never heard of the bios complaining with such an error, IN bios, due to a bad mbr - i'll confirm that).
In any case, you seem to be able to run tests on this drive (so, you have another drive with an OS).
A partially bad data cable for example could cause this.
Would you mind mentioning What HDD it is (brand / model), how (if at all peculiarly) the drive behaved before this started to happen?
(sry we took so long to answer - I dont know how your thread slipped to the bottom like that...)
