Dell inspiron 6000 dst short test fail. ie freezes every so often


Answers :

DST is the drive test. Basically, it's telling you that your hard drive is failing and that is why it is freezing up on you because the computer can't read/write from parts of the hard drive. You will need to replace the drive.
Your computer might be infected by virus. Perform a system scan using your antivirus. If it didn't work after scanning, perform a system restore. Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore. Select the previous date where it worked fine. Give that a try! Good Luck!
