Started about a month ago. Won't boot; says parameter out of range. diagnostics come back "Hard Drive 1 incorrect status = 3E smart predictive Failure" Error code 2000-0151. Also ran dell web diagnostics and it came back with an error on my Samsung SSD PM 871 2.5. A month ago was able to get by by simply unplugging for awhile. Today - finally got it to boot by pressing F12. No problems with computer once it is up and running (so not sure i really have as disk problem). 1) Any ideas on how to clear this error code or turn the smart predictive screening off; and 2) if i need to get a new HD - what is something that is compatible ? Thanks -- have been searching web for 4 hours now and no luck on either question.

also - only dell on line diagnostic and then at bootup is the only place where it says i have a hard disk problem. Everything else i look at says the disk is fine. I really think there is a high probability i just need to clear the parameter. I hope someone has an idea
