All packages are up-to-date breezy (sudo apt-get dist-upgrade) [Kernel 2.6.12-9]

The laptop [Which doesn't experience problems] is a Toshiba Satellite Pro A60,
with a celeron 2.80GHz, 768M of memory. I can't post the hdparm info right now
as I don't have it on me, but it's ATA 40G drive I'm fairly sure.
