diogenes_Vx15did it show anything?11:13
user|69no, just returns a shown above . .11:13
diogenes_Vx15i see, do you remember what error messages, any word from those messages?11:14
oerheks [sda] tag#6 Add. Sense: Unrecovered read error - auto reallocate failed .. sounds like a bad disk11:14
user|69after the boot erros . . .  Kubuntu loads anyway . . . i am using it now, my new Kubuntu to talk to you .. . everything looks normal!11:17
user|69I have 2 hard disks sda and sdb.  Windows 10 is in sda and Kubutu in sdb . . .11:19
diogenes_Vx15user|69: how old is the laptop?11:19
user|69Windows is having some problems . . . its very very slow . . . could that be the reason for the error messages?11:20
user|69laptop is from 2012 more or less . . . 10 years old11:20
diogenes_Vx15user|69: just try to cach some of those messages what it reads and then we can discuss11:21
diogenes_Vx15but even so, if everything works normally then there's no need to worry about.11:21
user|69to be honest i installed Kubuntu a month ago and it has been working fine until yesterday when it was not booting any longer.  I had to reinstall Kubuntu this morning.  I am worried that it will happen again because those error messages at boot time.11:24
diogenes_Vx15user|69: then yes. most lilely your drive is about to fails, i suggest you backup all your data.11:25
user|69before i buy a new disk driver . . . are you sure i have a bad hard disk?  which one sda or sdb?11:26
diogenes_Vx15user|69: we can test it.11:28
user|69i have nothing important yet in sdb (Kubuntu)  . . . no need to backup  . . . i think11:28
user|69ok how do i test?11:28
diogenes_Vx15user|69: sudo apt install smartmontools11:33
user|69ok  . . . wait please11:34
diogenes_Vx15after that run: sudo smartctl -H /dev/sda11:34
diogenes_Vx15sudo smartctl -H /dev/sdb11:34
user|69hydnum@Pickle:~$ sudo smartctl -H /dev/sda11:37
user|69smartctl 7.2 2020-12-30 r5155 [x86_64-linux-5.15.0-56-generic] (local build)11:37

user|69hydnum@Pickle:~$ sudo smartctl -H /dev/sdb11:37
user|69sorry i was disconnectd . . . i have run both commands:11:42
user|69sda and sdb return as follows:11:43
user|69SMART overall-health self-assessment test result: PASSED11:43
diogenes_Vx15user|69: could you install gnome-disk-utility?11:44
user|69yes anything you order . . .11:44
diogenes_Vx15sudo apt install gnome-disk-utility11:45
user|69done diogenes . . .11:48
diogenes_Vx15user|69: sorry i'm a bit multitasking so it takes longer for me to reply that i want11:49
diogenes_Vx15run in terminal: gnome-disks11:49
user|69no worries i can wait . . .11:50
diogenes_Vx15did it open the disks dialog?11:50
user|69its up and running . . .11:50
diogenes_Vx15ok in that dialog click on the first drive, then choose the Drive Options, usually represented by 3 dots or a gear11:51
diogenes_Vx15there select the option: SMART data and self-test11:51
diogenes_Vx15in the newly opened window look for the row that reads: Current Pending Sector Count11:52
diogenes_Vx15it should have the value of 0 sectors11:53
diogenes_Vx15if it's more than 0 then the drive has bad sectors11:53
user|69i cant find SMART data and self test . . .11:57
user|69it shows options for partitions . . .11:57
diogenes_Vx15user|69: look on the right side just before the minimize, maximize and close buttons11:58
user|69ok ok got it !11:59
user|69for sda (Windows) test completed . . . it says Disk is, OK 539 bad sectors12:02
user|69now running on sdb (Kubuntu) . . .12:02
user|69Disk is OK (no bad sectors)12:03
diogenes_Vx15user|69: look for the line: Current Pending Sector Count12:04
user|69yes that line shows 539 sectors for sda and 0 for sdb12:06
diogenes_Vx15which means your sda disk has bad sectors.12:06
user|69by the way the line just below "Uncorrectable sector count" is 0 sectors for sda.  can i somehow correct the bad sectors?12:07
diogenes_Vx15user|69: there are some command to try to correct the bad sectores but the result is not guaranteed and you need to backup your most important data12:08
user|69yes i would like to try to correct, if is ok for you diogenes, the Windows data is already backed up.12:10
user|69Anyway, i think diogenes had to leave.  THANK YOU for your great help!!!  I am very impressed. Have to think about a new hard drive or perhaps a new laptop . . . :b  . . . or is it worth trying to fix those sectors ? don know12:14
user|69anyway, thanks to you,  i have decided to move to Kubuntu for good<3 8)12:16

user|69ok oerheks i will do that . . . thank you for your wise advise12:18
