Ubuntu: HD errors - boot failed again with Ubuntu 16.04


Boom! This morning it has happened again... even with my new hard disk bought just two days ago. :( :(

Like with my previous hard disk, I had to manually run fsck to repair all hard disk errors. After that Ubuntu boots normally.

What's going on?

Before I had a 2 Terabytes HD "Green label" by Western Digital, so I bought a more reliable 1 Terabytes "Black label".

I have installed the smartmontools also, to check the new hard disk. But the tool didn't find any error or problem.

I have no idea where or what I should investigate further...

Sounds like an issue with faulty hardware.

Since you already did SMART self tests and found nothing wrong:

Try to update to latest BIOS version.

Check for bad RAM with memtest86+

Check for CPU errors with prime95.

You should also visually check your motherboard for visible issues like blown capacitors. It could even be your PSU.

Good luck!
