I get a S.M.A.R.T bar for my HDD when booting up

This is my first time posting so I apologise if I leave anything out.

 

My HDD : Western Digital Blue 1TB 

 

Recently, my PC wasn't responding after I had left in on overnight. I tried to shut it down but couldn't. I tried loading task manager using Ctrl+Alt+Delete and other methods but nothing worked. Eventually I just shut down my PC using the power button. I took my HDD out of the case and then but back in after a few minutes. When I tried to boot up my PC again, it would come up with a S.M.A.R.T error message that my HDD was bad and should be backed up and replaced. I then tried to boot into windows but could never get to the log in screen. 

 

Is there any way to log in so I can backup my files or even just to use my PC?

 

Any reply would be greatly appreciated

Don't try to boot off that drive again, connect it to another computer and copy the files you need to another drive starting with the most important ones. Then trash the drive and replace it.

How would I be able to connect it to another computer and copy the files without booting it?

connect the disk as secondary  on another pc  and just seek  the files you want to back up  and copy them ,

if you haven't access to  other pc  ,  you can create a usb  bootable  , you can try hiren boot , but you will need help  from a friend  to make that on another pc ..
