comment Is Ubuntu destroying my internal HDD?
Bad blocks occur naturally on ALL hard disks. Large numbers of bad blocks indicate a possible head crash. Until you do a WRITE test to the entire surface of the disk, you won't know which problem you have. You have READ errors, and bad blocks only get marked bad permanently if it's a WRITE error, hence the testing.

comment Where's the default video monitor config file
Thanks GuySoft! I couldn't figure out how to quit X, so I rebooted into maintenance mode with a r/w file system, and did the -configure command. I got a fairly large file, but with mostly generic data. It doesn't look like it contains specific display characteristics. Please advise. Cheers, Al

Oh, I forgot to mention that I re-enabled Visual Effects in the Appearance prefs so that compiz was running again.
