Trouble with SCSI, Trouble with Sata


Hi,
I've got a really troublesome machine, it was having SCSI I/O errors a lot, replacing the disks didn't help, replacing the scsi cable didn't help, even replacing the scsi controller didn't help... (the disk were a jbod). So I've stuck in large Sata disks instead to test how much slower they are, and again I'm having input output errors as follows on newly created ext3 filesystems when I try to use them:
Code:

I'm beginning to think this machine is cursed, I've already changed the motherboard which inexplicably worked until I shut the machine down, then switched it back on (or at least tried) and it just didn't switch back on, no static discharge or anything like that, just wouldn't play ball...

What on earth could be causing all these problems, practiccally everything in the whole case is new... the last thing to try is changing the psu which I've just done and will have to see if the errors recur...
