Were they right?! (the next chapter in the laptop saga)  
So I haven't had a hard drive error since I reinstalled linux and windows. Does that mean they were right? There is a physicall thing I did, where I had the HD out a few times, so I could have tightened a loose connector in that process, but it didn't seem loose. I don't remember when the problems started to happen, but I can't immagine an intermittent, grub happy, boot sector virus.

I'm so confused.

did you format the HD? doing so may have forced some bad blocks to be remapped. also, just writing to bad blocks can cause them to be remapped.

I ran the "sony, blow everything away and put windows on or we won't touch it" "recovery" disks. They likely reformatted.
