http://ubuntuforums.org – I am posting this again because I had enough of this problem hoping some one will help me this time (after 1 year of looking for a silution) MY HARD DISK HEATS!!! I have to use a cooler under the laptop ALWAYS so that the harddisk temp to stay below 50 C! I didnt have such a problem with windows 2 years ago. I had this problem with another DELL laptop a year ago ...exact same thing. ps. the load cycle count doesn't increase (if it increases it will every couple of hours) (maybe thats the problem) the following is the result of the "sudo smartctl --all /dev/sda " command: Code: smartctl version 5.38 [i686-pc-linux-gnu] Copyright (C) 2002-8 Bruce Allen Home page is http://smartmontools.sourceforge.net/ === START OF INFORMATION SECTION === Device Model:    WDC WD1600BEVT-60ZCT0 Serial Number:    WD-WXC408517483 Firmware Version: 11.01A11 User Capacity:    160,041,885,696 bytes Device is:        Not in smartctl database [for details use: -P showall] ATA Version is:  8 ATA Standard is:  Exact ATA specification draft version not indicated Local Time is:    Mon Oct 26 04:13:53 2009 GST SMART support is: Available - device has SMART capability.
