linux frozen


Hello every one.Well my linux(suse) worked fine till last night---it froze and I rebooted and now I have the black screen of death. Says somthing about bad blocks and for me to get a new hard drive---this drive is only 5 days old (ide).Will no accept my password and it tells me to hit (control-d) to reboot. That wont work-still will not take my password, And I know it very well. It all started when I was playing some songs on it and I heard a click in the tower and things went dead.Any help please I want to keep this os because I like what it does .
THANK YOU
TWOSPEED

It is possible that you have a dead hard drive. Manufacturing faults can mean that a drive can die after a few days.

Is there a "Failsafe" option on the GRUB bootloader screen? Try selecting this, and see if you can bring up your system.

If you boot your system with a LiveCD (I don't know if Suse has a rescue CD), you can use FSCK to check your drive for errors. Never do this on a mounted partition though.
