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."
