I have had LinuxMint4 installed for 2 months and everything has been fine. But, since last night, I am now getting these errors upon boot up
"ATA1.00 Exception Emask"
"ATA1.00 BMDMA stat"
After listing lots of the above errors it then advises me to perform a manual FSCK, which results in many of these errors:
Either 1) "Error reading block ######", "... resulted in short read" while getting next inode from scan
Or 2) "Buffer I/O error"
And after every instance of the above errors I get asked:
Ignore error? Y
Force Rewrite? Y
Followed by this question on many files:
Eventually Mint will start, but then displays an error regarding a Panel and I have no MintMenu
Can anyone help me?
