Re: what is a short dst failure and start up test failure

A short dst failure indocates that the hard disk is failing or has failed.  If you are able to access the BIOS, run a hard disk diagnostic test. HP is likely to ask if you have done that if you contact warranty service.

 

Is your notebook still within warranty?

If yes, contact HP for warranty service.

If not then replace the hard disk with one of the same or larger capacity and run a factory restore via the recovery disk set or USB recovery media.

 

Sorry for the bad news.

 

Best regards,

This usually means your hard drive is failing. I would back up all of your information and look into replacing the hard drive.
