    SMART Short Self Test?

    I've been having problems with my computer, so I used the Hardware
    Diagnostics Tool application and then did the system test.

    And it told me my computer failed the SMART Short Self Test.

    Is there anything I can do to fix this?

    "If the test fails, copy the data on the hard disk drive and and replace the hard disk drive."
