I just like to keep things simple. As stated earlier, using Linux Mint 15 Cinnamon 32 bit, I just click on the radio button for BCM4313 and 184.108.40.206+bdcom-0ubuntu6 works perfectly...

A fresh installation really is no big deal, especially if you are going to have a problem-free Linux version to deal with in the future.
If you don't happen to like Unity in...
Boot from the live CD and use the Disk Utility to check the hard drive status using SMART.
In Ubuntu 12.04 the route is:
Applications > System Tools > Preferences > Disk Utility
