im pretty new to ubuntu.i installed ubuntu 10.04 but was having many problems,
so i tried installing ubuntu 9.10 and upgrading but while partitioning i got an error.
finally i managed to install it but im getting a warning about my disk having 178 bad sectors.
i tried googling how to fix it but did not get any precise solution
the number of bad sectors are not increasing.
i have backed up my data and would like to know if there is any way i could fix it
i.e. without buying a new hard drive??
also will it create any problems?
thanks a lot in advance
