Dell XPS failed surface scan in diagnostics Tags: Support Dell Studio Xps Hard Drives Surface Last response: March 8, 2012 3:12 PM in Opinions and Experiences Share countrywhispering March 6, 2012 4:38:17 PM Hello, My Dell XPS failed surface scan in diagnostics. Dell denys its an hard drive issue. Is it or isn't it? Help!! More about : dell xps failed surface scan diagnostics hang-the-9 March 8, 2012 3:12:58 PM That makes no sense, the surface scan is a drive diagnostic, so if it failed it can't be anything except a drive failure. Have the Dell tech you speak with explain how it's not, I'd like to hear what they say about it. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
