So I have the issue with my laptop not starting up so I went on the startup screen, pressed f2 and did the quick and fast scan. Both times I’ve had the Short DST check fail and every other one pass. I don’t know what to do. Any help from you wise wizards?

You have a failed/failing HDD.
MAKE BACKUPS OF YOUR DATA.
Next make a Recovery Media. Buy a replacement HDD.
From 2016 onwards there is a possible recovery option via the cloud...
HP Consumer PCs - Using the HP Cloud Recovery Tool (Windows 7 & 10)
If in doubt please ask.
