    Unhappy Re: laptop harddrive Load_Cycle_Count issue

    Ok, now which of these are my Load_Count_Cycle?

    I'm having trouble following this...I have a laptop also, and it looks as if in the detailed step at the beginning the WORST is always over the Thres. I don't know if I should continue using Ubuntu now...

    your load cycle is the "7054", wait 15 mins and run the command again, and youll know aprox how much loads you getting with respect to time,

    Whoah, this is wierd...I did the load count and I got the same number as the time 15 min. before...wow, is this even possible? The whole time I've been browsing the internet, uninstalling some programs, and installing new ones... Well, at least its good!

    Re: laptop harddrive Load_Cycle_Count issue

    yeah, its possible that means that your laptop never parked the hdd head, and your good with your hdd then

    however, when you restar your pc/resume from hibernate, youll note that itll increase probably by 1, (because when you hibernate/suspendor shut down your pc, it always stop spinning and park the head)

    It is possible that your drive doesn't respond to hdparm values. I had a drive, that was already on its way out, that refused to accept the hdparm values I threw at it.

    You could try configuring laptop-mode and change the perceived idle time, or spin-down time.

    Or first, try looking through man hdparm for the -S option and try soem different values there. That is the spin down time option. It's worth a shot.

    Re: laptop harddrive Load_Cycle_Count issue

    Hello, i'm running Hardy on a Presario F700 laptop and i hear a very nasty noise, quite loud when i'm not doing anything.... i think it is not the constant clicking produced by the load cycle count.... a applied some fix to it and the Load Cycle Count does not increase.... Imagine this: i'm almost sleep with the laptop en the desk... no sounds.... i'm leting ubuntu to download movies for me during the night... and suddenly a noise like the CD drive is ejected... but it comes from the hard drive... i hear it duriong the day... when i stop and start to read a PDF and a couple of minutes passed... again that sound... it occurs one a while.... but it is not constant... any ideas? this is the output info of smartctl, the device name and the smart info... i heard that the samsung disks need some -F samsung or samsung2 parameter... please tell me if i'm doing something wrong... the temperature is not right y think... is a long number...

    what should i do to determine the source of this sound? i ran smartctl once and after one of this huge ticks, i ran again and found that the only number that increased was the Calibration Retry Count.... is this possible? may be other parameter not showed? thanks for your help.

    Re: laptop harddrive Load_Cycle_Count issue

    From what I've read an increase of the value associated with the Calibration Retry Count can indicate:

    problem with motor, bearings or power supply.

    Re: laptop harddrive Load_Cycle_Count issue

    bearings? what's that... power supply? it's a laptop and i used mostly plugged in... you mean something wrong internally with power supply?

    whatever it is, it isn't a good sign... right?

    thanks... and what about the -F samsung parameter...?

    Re: laptop harddrive Load_Cycle_Count issue

    I ran the commands posted in this thread, and it worked.

    I went from ~25 cycles in 15 minutes to none.

    I have a Dell Vostro 1400 with the affected TOSHIBA MK8037GSX.
