So, I'm brand new to Linux having switched over from Windows 7.
I seem to be having 3 Main problems.
First, when I start up, it says no such partition found or something like that a few times until I keep trying to boot and it finally gets through. I also keep getting a notification about drive failure. When looking at the SMART data it says I have 2047 bad sectors, Is this the cause?

Third, all the drop down menus for Firefox are slanted
