Enabling SMART in BIOS does a SMART check on the drive when the machine 
is powered on. If the drive fails, the BIOS may ignore it. You can have 
SMART disabled in BIOS and still have smartd run. Check your 
/etc/smartd.conf file and make sure the disks defined there match what 
you actually have in your system.
