Short Drive Self Test codes

Product Name: 550-153A
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Ran HP diagnostics Short Drive Self test and got a failure code of QC43TX-81V928-X87SMA-60RV03.  Other than a slow start up, I'm not seeing any other problems with the drive.  Anybody know what the code means?

This means your hard drive is starting to fail and you should backup your data and consider replacing the drive soon.

Thanks for that.  I ran the test again and it passed this time.  Intermittent failures are a real pain!

Re: Short Drive Self Test codes

I would still consider creating a back up of your files to protect against a unexpected failure.

Re: Short Drive Self Test codes

Done it already but disappointed if it fails as it’s only two years old.

One piece of software that is able to give you some info is Crystal Disk info.  It gives you all kinds of info including Drive health.
