Not much here to go on but...
Is it still under warranty? Call my boss (HP)
1 800-HP invent or 1 800-474-6836
and have them send you a box to ship it back to them for service, unless you can swap the drive yourself AND have already made your recovery CD's. If the Notebook still runs but only failed the diagnostics, then back up all your stuff and get ready, cause the Hard Drive gonna is gonna pack it in.
You never said how old or how big the drive is, has it been replaced lately like a lot of the other DV 9000's the 250 G WD drives in the DV9000 seems to only last a few months at best. We call it a "known issue" at HP.

Will not recor .@ i can't reformat the hard disc


Try to save all your data, guess your hard disk is failing.
OK, it's just a general idea; you should check your hard disk's status with a diagnostics app:

Error code 0142 message error code 2000-0142


My computer did boot up to the desktop, but was completely unresponsive from there when trying to open anything. I ran a system diagnostics and got this error with the status byte of 70. I rebooted into Safe Mode and was then able to open files. I backed up my stuff to a flash drive and then ran Error-Checking in the HD Properties which runs the CHKDSK function the next time the computer is rebooted. That found 2 bad file clusters and repaired them. One was a file called Windows.edb, which does the hard drive search indexing for Windows and was most likely my problem with the lockups. The other was a Napinsp.dll file. After these were fixed and the computer was rebooted, everything worked normally.
This HD is only 9 months old, but if this happens again, I'll replace it again.

I get the error code 2000-0146 only when i run the f12 diagnostic


The 2000-0146 error code indicates a read/write failure of the hard drive. There is at least 1 sector that is failing on the drive. While it is working at the moment, the drive is failing and will over time degrade and eventually fail completely. Backup any important data, then replace the drive.

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
