Debian Problem


Very bad subject, but I don't really know what the problem is...

Iceweasel wasn't coming up, saying there was a problem with the icon, so I tried Konq, but same thing. I tried to restart, but I am getting the following messages:

Quote:
debian login: end_request:I/O error, dev hdb, sector 4531254
end_request:I/O error, dev hdb, sector 4531262
end_request:I/O error, dev hdb, sector 4531270
end_request:I/O error, dev hdb, sector 4531254
end_request:I/O error, dev hdb, sector 4531254
end_request:I/O error, dev hdb, sector 4531254
_
It just sits there, I've never seen this before...

What is wrong, and how can I fix it?

Problem solved, when I booted into GParted, it didn't even think there was a drive there, so I checked my cables. Moral of the story, make sure your cable are fully inserted, not at an angle...

Just an FYI, you will get the same error if the HDD is failing.
