    My Maxtor 40 gigs is giving me a hard time....
    Had troubles since the begining I bought my new mobo,
    By boot up,my hard disk would not be regognized, and reset follows, It happened sometimes.....

    Now I,ve got new headache,
    Boot up S.M.A.R.T Warning : Save your data and replace hard disk !!!
    But presing the F1 button system starts up and hard drive spins and works well.......

    Maxtor diagnostic tool says :
    Error code : UK0E02
    Bios extencion support : Failed
    Portition Information : Failed

    I had this same problem about two months ago. And yes, I concur with Lonman, you need to replace that puppy fast!

    At the very least, backup all important info immediately. It may last for a little while, but telling when is impossible...

    It's dead, Jim...
