Question about PC Desktops
Yes, may be the hard drive... so goahead and run a test on hard drive....
try going to bios setup.... from the main menu in bios... highlight the hard drive... maybe displayed in first drive, or second drive...push Enter... and from the list select an option smart self test...
There would be two test's one is smart self test and smart extented self test... first select the smart self test... it would go up to 5 min... if it is pass go to second test...ie., smart extended test...it would go upto an hour.
If first test fails... no need to run the second...directly replace the hdd... but if pass go to second.. and check the hard drive..
As you said you are using UBUNTU.... try install it again.. if hdd both test pass..
