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.
