I purchased a new Seagate HDD last week after an imminent failure of the previous one, installed an OS 10 pro but today my PC just won't boot up.
Run diagnostics, Memory is fine, Smart check is passed but Short DST FAILED... am waiting for the long DST to complete.
Please help, what do I do about this.
Any help will be much appreciated people

If both tests failed...Seagate diagnostics on Seagate drives...the message is clear, IMO.


The only thing impacting a hard drive diagnostic...is the functional state of the drive being diagnosed.
