Default HD Problem

My Laptop (Dell Latitude D820) running Kubuntu Intrepid has been working fine,
then I replaced the HD to get some more breathing room. Seemed to be working
well for some time but now suddenly it just stalls out, locking up
momentarily, for up to a couple of minuted.
In trying to determine what was going on I found it was pdflush and kjournald
that would be running excessively.
I began googleing around and found that my raw writes and seek error rates
seem very high, everything else seems fine, see below.

Any suggestions appreciated.

Those are some of the biggest numbers on raw_error, seek_error and
hardware_ecc_recovered I've ever seen! I've seen drives with a slightly
tens of thousands of ecc_recovered that still work well, but your drive
only has been turned on for 211 hrs, shut off or rebooted 78 times and
forced off (holding the power button I assume, 6 times. That's a bad
new drive suffering from the "infant mortality syndrome" I suppose.
Hopefully this smart data will help you get a refund/replacement.

Joel.

Get your data off that drive and RMA it, its toast.

That is fairly warm, but shouldn't be a factor at its age and powerup count.

Thanks to all who responded,

I have replaced the drive with a WD replacement, It is working great! Fast,
quiet and no slugs!

Now I have been arguing with Seagate, they say there drive is fine, cause it
passes their DOS seatools diagnostics. This reminds me of why I have not
purchased a seagate drive for many years, just a moment of weakness I guess!

That's very odd. Normally you should simply be able to send them the SMART
output and that should be the end of the issue: they should replace it with
no further questions asked.

I suggest you insist on escalating the issue. Eventually, you should be
able to reach someone who knows what SMART is, and at that point you should
be fine.
