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 Fantom HD external hard drive(1 TB) stopped working properly about six months ago. During its decline, it started getting more and more bad sectors, until its final crash some weeks back. Before the crash, most of the files in the drive could be loaded, but only on Ubuntu - when I plugged the drive into a Windows XP computer, a message box popped up saying "Format new drive".
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.
I have 2 Hp t610 plotters , one of them has a disk failure , is there a tip to clone the first hard-drive to blank hard-drive , note that i have tried to clone using active boot disk but it gives an error , and another note if i open the healthy hard drive it shows as if its not formatted ,i think this is a protection from hp on its hard drives .
Please i need a solution to power on my stopped pl
