Default Hard disk error

Hi,

From few weeks, sometimes (4 to 5 times a day) my ubunty gusty system doesnot responds to anything and have to wait a minute or two to use the system normally. I check the log. Below is my output of dmesg


What should I do now?

Thanks
Paras.

It sounds to me like your hard disk drive is failing. Back up any
important data, get a new one and be ready to replace it as soon as it
dies.

Not a issue of /etc/hdparm.conf ?

Liam's partly right - I've never seen this sort of error unless the drive is
failing. I just don't agree that you should "get a new one and be ready to
replace it" - I'd get a new one and replace it right away! If your system
can support two drives, you might keep the failing one for non-important
storage. I've found some of these drives to be fairly reliable once you
take things like swap off them, but I would never again trust it with
anything important.
