Use a live cd - system rescue CD or parted magic cd to test your disk

First try to fsck the partitions

Then

Important things -> smartctl short, long tests,

post output of

#hdparm -I /dev/sda etc

There's nothing suspicious there, but if you want you can go ahead and post the output of 'smartctl -a /dev/sda' and sdb.
