I started the comp and got a message that read SMART predicts that a
failure is imminent blah blah blah.
Now that didnt show up before i switch the wires. Could that be the
cause? Should I just hit "f1" and continue? or should I do something
else? I WAS fetting a different error before that. it read "failed to
write ESCD." So im not really sure what to do here. I've got alot of
important crap on there.

Backup the hard drive IMMEDIATELY. I've had a couple of drives indicate
SMART failures. One continued to work for months. One created more and
more errors as I continued to use it. And one died COMPLETELY a few weeks
after getting the error.

It is doubtful that the wires are causing the problem.
