    Maybe... do you mean your CMOS settings are periodically reset ? In this
    case it usually is simply a worn-out battery.

    K7S5A Pro are dirt cheap these days, so it might be a good idea to buy a
    new one.

    For the record, reallocated sectors are quite common with modern disks,
    I had some (3-4) on a one-year old 120Go Maxtor but the drive worked
    perfectly. You should install the smartmontools and run smartd
    configured to send you an e-mail each time a new defect is found. You
    have then one more opportunity to anticipate a drive going to fail by
    backuping and restoring on another drive.
