Failed SMART Short Self Test

Hi,

My computer failed the SMART Short Self Test.  Error code HD521-2W.  What does that mean?  What do I do to fix it?

This error is a warning when the Hard Drive of the unit is going to die shortly. Refer the following weblink for more information:

If your system is in warranty, please contact HP technical support for Hard Drive replacement.
