Well its either hardware or software... but seriously, I'm hearing symptoms
of both from your descriptions. If these drives were working in this
machine prior to any updates and are now failing then I'd suspect a kernel
update as the culprit. Have you checked for any updated BIOS or firmwares
for this system? Is this a different system/chipset than the other laptops?
What changed 6-8 weeks ago on this system or drives?
