hard drive short dst check: failed

pavilion f113dx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
I'be had my computer for about 18 months and yesterday when I tried to start it it said preparing automatic repair. I did a system test and it said hard drive short dst failed . Failure id: GTTW67-7A984B-MFPV7F-60TW03. I no longer have a warranty for the laptop I was wondering if there was a way for me to fix the problem myself.

hard drive short dst check: failed

hello

 

 

The 24 character error code is a failure of the short Disk Self Test ( DST ) and would indicate that the Hard Drive is failing and needs to be replaced.

 

If your notebook is still under warranty, contact HP and arrange to have the drive replaced - If needed, you can check your warranty status Here.

 

else you can purchase a hdd and install it yourself, for OS disk you can contact hp

If you live in the US, contact HP Here.
