HP has enhanced the Hard Drive Self-Test routine which is accessible via the notebook’s F10 Setup
Tools menu. The new routine of the hard drive self-test increases its ability to detect a fault and fail the
hard drive. The short and long versions of the hard drive self-test have been combined as one test
option. Initiating the enhanced hard drive self-test includes the following:
1. The short test runs. If no errors occur, the long test automatically runs.
2. If no errors occur, SMART attribute checking automatically runs.
3. If a failure is detected in either of the tests, the process halts and failure occurs.
Note: Either test may be aborted at any time by pressing the esc key.
