SOURCE: diagnostic test failed

Most likely you can't...The SMART read stands for Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology. If this test fails the hard drive will likely crash soon so backup what information you can to a CD-R or flash drive.

Chris, you did not state auto or man. transmission. If auto check fluid level, if low top up. If still slipping and fluid OK, a transmission tech. will have to look at it and diagnose.
If manual trans. clutch is either worn out or oil has gotten onto its surface, in either case a transmission tech. will have to look at it and diagnose.

12 volt battery test

I have seen many times a 12 volt car battery pass the diagnostic test performed at a repair shop but still fail while being used in the car.
A simple test to do at home is the cranking amps test. Place your 12 volt meter on the battery and check for 12 volts. Then looking at the meter crank the car over. If the voltage drops to 10 volts with all accessories off then the batteries cranking storage amps is weak. A bad scenerio would be the battery drops to below 9 volts. Below 9.6 volts there is not enough electricty to provide good spark to fire the engine.

I have a 07,010.43:45789 error code pop up. Any ideas?

7,010.43: The Printhead is stuck in the tilted position,
or is not able to tilt forward to the print position, due to problems.
Reboot the printer.
Repair or replace the Printhead Restraints.
Has ink spilled ink around the Printhead that prevents the Printhead from moving to its center position? You should be able to push the Printhead right to left. Clean the Printhead area.
Is the Printhead stuck to the Wiper Blade? Start the printer in diagnostics mode and run idiags test Exercise Heater - toggle Printhead heaters to soften the ink. Manual separate the wiper and Printhead. Set them in their home positions.
Does the X-Axis Motor drive the Printhead to its center position (so it can tilt forward)?
Check the Process Drive for obstructions or damaged.
Ensure the gears are correctly aligned and homed.
Verify the process shaft and drive module shaft are at their home positions.
Has ink spilled on the Head Tilt Gear on its drive train (near left side of the Printhead)?
Use Service Diagnostics to run the Head Maintenance Wiper Clutch test. If the test fails replace the Head Maintenance Clutch.
Align the Wiper Assembly. Use Service Diagnostics to run the Wiper Drive Test. If the test fails replace the Exit Module.
Use Service Diagnostics to run the Load Maintenance Clutch test.
If the test fails inspect the maintenance drive system, replace any defective parts.
Verify the Head Tilt Gear engages. You can manually set the Head Tilt Gear.
Use Service Diagnostics to run the Tilt Axis Drive test.
If the test fails replace the Process Drive.
Use Service Diagnostics to run the Process Motor test.
If the test fails replace the Process Drive.

Dell Dimension 2400 What is Targeted Read Test WHD-20-2RQ and Smart Short Self Test WHD16-FTD and how do I fix it if it said they failed

These are results of two sections of Dell Diagnostics tests which can be run by pressing F10 at startup.

You would have to watch them run to see what has failed during the test.

From Targeted Read Test WHD-20-2RQ failed, could be failure to read RAM (memory), CD/DVD Drive, or Hard Drive.

Something failing within Smart Short Self Test WHD16-FTD could literally be anything within the computer, without seeing what has actually failed during the test.

You probably ran the 32-bit diagnostics in this Dell computer.

The error code 00F0:136C, actually is talking about the "OPTICAL DRIVE,"which is your CD/DVD ROM; not the hard drive.

That will fail since, I am assuming you didn't put anything inside the CD-ROM.

The diagnostics tests everything and in this case, it tested the CD-ROM and failed since there is no CD inside the CD/DVD-ROM.

Hope this helps.

Helo i try to play a game and i get nmi memorry parity error blah blah, with a blue screen.

There are number of things that can cause an error like this. Faulty memory, a bad harddrive, a failing motherboard, or a corrupt OS.
If you get this error every time you power on your PC than follow the below steps
It probably meant the installation itself was corrupt, not the disk you were using.

To test your memory try Windows Memory Diagnostic Test

The Windows Memory Diagnostic tests the Random Access Memory (RAM) on your computer for errors. The diagnostic includes a comprehensive set of memory tests. If you are experiencing problems while running Windows, you can use the diagnostic to determine whether the problems are caused by failing hardware, such as RAM or the memory system of your motherboard. Windows Memory Diagnostic is designed to be easy and fast. On most configurations, you can download the diagnostic, read the documentation, run the test and complete the first test pass in less than 30 minutes.

Or you can try memtest

To test your hard drive for corrupt/bad sectors find the manufacturer of your hard drive and run their Hard Drive Diagnostics Utility.

This will give us a foundation to work on and will (should) eliminate two possible sources of your problem.

Amber check engine light on a 2003 chevy 2500.

This means your vehicle has failed to complete one or more of a series of self-diagnostic tests, usually but not always emissions related. The only way to find out which system has failed the test is to have the Diagnostic Trouble Codes read with special diagnostic equipment. Once you know the codes stored in your vehicle's computer, it will help determine what repairs are needed.

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.

My speakers do not work anymore in my inspiron 2200

If you press Fn while powering the system on it should enter diagnostic mode. It will perform some memory tests and then present a video test screen at which point it plays sound through the speakers. If you here this sound, then your hardware is functioning and it is a software problem. There are USB sound cards available - note: you would need external speakers as well.
