Hard Drive Short DST Check: Failure ID code: M4M79L-76D8H9-MFPV7G-60QA03

Hi there.  The hard disk has been continually running on the laptop and I have been trying stop this from happening to preserve battery life and improve speed.  Following various things I did a test and got this failure code.   It is on an HP Pavillion 15 laptop.  How do you find out exactly what the error means - it seems the hard drive might be about to fail but I don't want to replace it if thats not the real issue.

Thanks!

Hi,


Yes that is the real issue.

Replace it with a new one of similar form factor.

If you're within warranty HP would replace it free of cost. Contact HP technical support.

Use recovery USB/discs to factory reset after replacement.
