    I'm rather confused here as to what your current hardware setup is.
    And you haven't said what, if anything, you did to fix it

    Lots of bad sectors (say more than 3) detected by scandisk is a worrying sign, as it almost certainly means your hard disk is about to expire again.
    You have no option but to replace it if this is the case.

    Make sure you back up your data first if this is what is happening, whilst you still have the chance

    I will repeat my post from above (page1), run the diagnostic tool from your manufacturer!

    This is the only way you will:
    a) be able to determine what's the cause of your problems
    b) be able to do a return to manufacturer procedure (RMA) if still in waranty

    check the hutil and diagnostic tool from samsung
