I have a problem with my laptop startup
I have used the HP diagnostics software and i am getting the following with the hard disk test
Hard Disk SMART Test: NOT AVAILABLE
Hard Disk Short DST: WARNING
Hard Disk Optimized DST: PASSED
Hrd Disk Long DST: WARNING
Does this mean i need to replace my hard drive? Or do you thing i can just format it?

If you have any working unit, then you can connect this Hard disk drive on that to make sure its not a unit issue. Since in some cases when you run the test on the HDD it gives Not Available, but the issue was related to HDD.
