HDD or File System issue


I'm still relativity new to Linux world especially when it comes to diagnostics. Last Friday I had a boot problem and my OS wouldn't load. It was giving Unexpected Inconsistency Run fsck Manually. So, I did and P1 was repaired and the OS loaded, granted some apps were corrupt. When I did smartctl on the drive it was reporting fine. Now n1p2 is having an issue. Should I replace the drive or is it just a cascading error in the file system and I should just nuke the machine and start over? Or is there a good way to stem the problem?

Screenshots of the current error: https://1drv.ms/f/s!AtItXRNac1nKhpZmKneTiOe6xvLWVg

Code:
root@Pixy-PC:~# sudo smartctl -a /dev/nvme0

Hi ghultstrand,

Welcome!

It sounds like a hardware problem on the motherboard. I can't be positive about it. It might also be a failing PSU. If you have important data on the machine, I would back it up immediately. You never can tell how long the machine will last.

I had a machine that had periodic file system errors, boot errors, and miscellaneous weirdness. Finally I backed everything up. I shut down afterward. And the machine never booted again. NO POST, no beep, just fans on the highest speed.

It wouldn't do anything. And it had fast/wide scsi drives. So, I wouldn't have been able to just drop them in another chassis.

Try booting to a Live CD of something. If it's a motherboard issue, it should affect the Live CD boot.

Note: You should like try this several times with a couple of different Live CDs before you can safely draw any conclusions.

Make sure you back up all your personal data, now, just in case, then try & sort out what is happening.

could you post output of "smartctl -x" instead of "smartctl -a" ?

Hey all - I gave up and formatted the HDD and just implemented a better backup plan so even if it crashes I won't be down for long. Thanks for the advice everyone!
