    When I ran the diagnostic test on my Dell laptop, one of the parts failed.

    DST Short Status Test
    Unit 4: Drive Self Test Failed - Status Byte: 70

    So this basically means that something is wrong with my hard drive? It seems to be working fine, though. The only thing is that it gets really hot, could that be it?

    If someone can clear this matter up for me, that'd be great.

    Thanks
