Hard Drive failure

I ran a scan on my laptop through "MY Dell"  and got the following failures:

Targeted Read test  -  Failed WHD20-41Q

and

Smart 'short Self Test - Failed WHD16-GZJ

What do they mean?  What shoudl  I  do ?

RE: Hard Drive failure

Hi Redman722,

My suggestion is to confirm the result by booting to your Dell drivers and utilities disc and running the Dell diagnostics from there. If the diagnostics produce a similar read error, then you'll need a new hard drive.
