HDD dying ?

My computer acted wired. It was not able to mount some partitions when booting. My Samsung HD 103SI seems to have some broken sectors (40, says Palimpsest), checks do not finish.

The Samsung Windows tool ESWin detects the bad sectors, but everything else seems fine.

I changed the BIOS settings to AHCI, maybe it helps. At least I hope so. The computer seems more responsive…

Palimpsest is a cool tool and the new Ubuntu just  rocks – but maybe Palimpsest has some trouble with the hdd and the missing AHCI. Or some driver is a wee bit buggy

If you got any experience with this combination, please tell me !

Running backups now…..
