Worried about these errors


Hi there, i've been getting these errors every day for the last two days, twice yesterday and i'm worried my hard drive's about to die,

If it's something simple than i can fix easily i'd be extremely happy but i'm a bit clueless!

WARNING: Kernel Errors Present
I/O error: dev 08:02, sect...: 3Time(s)
Additional sense indicates Unrecovered read error - auto reallocat...: 3Time(s)
Current sd08:02: sense key Medium Error...: 3Time(s)
ata1: error=0x40 { Uncorrect...: 15Time(s)
ata1: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }...: 15Time(s)

That's from my logwatch

In order of log/messages

Jul 17 15:55:13 rigel kernel: ata1: status=0x51 { DriveReady SeekComplete Error }
Jul 17 15:55:13 rigel kernel: ata1: error=0x40 { UncorrectableError }

Please help me!

I would be worried about those errors as well. Usually, they indicate a hard drive with serious (physical) issues. It COULD however, be a bad or misseated cable. Try replacing the cable, or at least unplugging all connectors and plugging them back in to remove any corrosion or correct any loose connections.
