I am using Ubuntu 10.04. I am having a problem with my HDD, it is showing "DISK FAILURE IS IMMINENT". Can i do anything about it?
As my problem is with my office system i don't have the admin rights.Can anyone suggest the solution?
I have on my hard drive 2 OSes: Ubuntu 12.04 and Windows Vista( I keep it just because of school). Everything was OK on both OSes,but one day on Ubuntu I was getting awkward noises from my notebooks's hard drive and then everything stops and I couldn't do anything. On Windows everything was ok.
Everytime I boot on Ubuntu I can get 5 minutes of normal run, without problems.

I'm a newbie here. I need to check for hard disk failure in my linux. Suspect "intermittent" hard disk failure is causing some of my tables in oracle database to have missing records. May I know which log and how can I check for hard disk failure?
My laptop is an Acer Aspire and A couple days ago my hard drive went bad and it started out with only a few bad sectors but then completely wouldn't work. Since then I have tried repairing it using Ubuntu and it was unsuccessful on my first hard drive.
Died on me a month or so ago. It had been showing signs of failure so I backed it up while it still had some life in it and, since it is 5 or more years old, I shrugged and placed it aside for the time being. Today, having nothing better to do, I disassembled the housing and removed the hard disk. Then I got my handy 5 in 1 adapter kit (external) and plugged the disk into a USB port. It mounted!
