Bad sectors?

Postby schollmeier on Thu Feb 11, 2010 11:49 am

Alright I couldn't quite find my answer by looking elsewhere so here it goes.

I got a new laptop yesterday. I installed Mint ver 8 this morning. It says that I need to replace the hdd as it has 100-and-some bad sectors. Is it possible that the HDD is failing already? Or could this be an issue with the install?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.
