Re: Short DST: Failed

Short DST is a hard drive test, your hard drive is failing and needs replaced.

Re: Short DST: Failed

Seeing as my warranty just expired one month ago, what are the chances HP will do anything about it?

0% chance. The hdd can be replaced with any 2.5" Mobile SATA hdd.If you will post the full model number or PN from the Service tag attached to bottom of laptop someone can offer suggestions on replacement. Hope you burned an OS Recovery DVD set?
