Unable to start computer: Short DST failed

My laptop is unable to start up successfully and it continually restarts to the same screen. So I ran the start-up test and it says Short DST failed. I am unfamiliar with this computer lingo and was wondering if anyone could help. Thanks

Re: Unable to start computer: Short DST failed

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