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.

Short dst failed fix


Drive short test failure usually indicates what it says, which is a fault with the drive, but you state that this happened after an update (don't trust windows update!)
do you have have any error codes this could indicate further the exact problem. but usually this type of error would indicate a drive fault which would require replacing the drive

Dell latitude d600


Greetings AROD718,

This error message is telling you that your hard-drive is nearing OR has already failed.

I would contact a buddy or go somewhere local to get Data recovery ASAP or if that is not important to you start shopping for a new hard-drive.

Hard drives are not very expensive and are simple to install, if you need further assistance please reply back!


Good luck,

Shawn

I got the below error ... is it possible tot ake my backup from the HDD?


A 0146 error means that the hard drive has a failing sector, and the drive will need replaced. If it's operable, then back everything wanted or needed up, because it will fail completely if it hasn't already.

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
