can anyone please tell me what is the DPS test I ran in BIOS?I have just installed windows 7 ultimate on my PC. it has 3 HDD, 2x 160GB and one 1.00 TB, everything was fine for about 1hour30min and windows notified me that the HDD is failing 5min later the HDD disappeared from Explore(my computer)
Took it to work to check it with my wokPC[HP Compacq dc 7600 running XP Prof(SP2)] and it gave me this error when booting up?
1720-SMART HD detects imminent failure
Failing Drive: SATA 1
So i did the DPS Self Test and got this
Test Failed. Drive replacement recommended
completion code: 4
size : 1.00 TB
does this mean the HDD is damaged?
