    I have the same problem = Code Error 0F00 - 065D when I run the diagnostic self-test. I have a Dell Vostro 1710 Laptop. However, I can run the Window for few minutes, and then cannot use it anymore. It goes: Window Explorer (not responding).

    Any advice how to solve it?

    When i tried to load my computer a blue message flashed up and said that there has been some hardware installed improperly on my computer so it had to be shut down to prevent damage to the system. When I performed a test the following error codes flashed up:

    Error Code 0F00:065D
    Msg: IDE device failed: The self-test failed the read portion of the test.

    Then when I continued the test the following error code flashed up:

    Error Code 0F00:137B
    Msg: device failed: Blank media or no media is present in optical drive. Test requires media with data (Resource CD, Installation CD).

    If anyone can help, that will be much appreciated.

The error code says that "Windows will not boot, Not even in safe mode". Am i right...
Get a new Hard drive(HDD) and connect it to your pc and load the Windows Operating System. Or again try installing a new copy of Windows to same hard drive. Hopefully it should work.

Or else do one thing . First you do this - Go to BIOS setup. To do this restart your PC and keep on pressing the del key or F8 key. The system will automatically goes to BIOS mode. change the configuration settings i.e., disable storage devise. If it's enabled then your pc will not detect Hard drive. Thank you

D610 DST Short Status Test Fail

It appears your hard disk has died and it may not be possible for you to retrieve your data.
Remove your hard drive from the laptop and insert it into an USB harddrive adapter, (they are not expensive and you can use it later as a external hard drive). Then plug it into the USB port of a working computer. The computer should/may see it as an external drive, if you are lucky you will be able to copy your data, if not, you are out of luck.
There are companies that can recover data from faulty hard drives, but it will cost you an arm and a leg for their service.

DST Short Status Test (Error detected)

DST stands for Drive Self Test, it means your drive is failing.

I would get a new hard drive and USB enclosure, install new drive in laptop and install windows, then take the old drive and install it in the USB enclosure so you can connect to your laptop when windows is running and restore your files, assuming the drive is not completely dead.

thanks for rating
