I have a 2 month old laptop, and I normally put it on the table, never had to move it around, so I don't know why the G-sense error rate would increase by 1 every 4 to 8 days?
Just today, the G-sense error rate was at 39 this morning, and the entire day, the laptop didn't move, and was in the same location, but tonight, it went from 39 to 3A. Is this a cause for concern?
How sensitive must the shock or vibration must be to make the S.M.A.R.T G-sense error rate raw value to go up? As I said before, the computer is on a table, and I am not moving it. The only time i do move it is when the computer is either hibernating or shut down. Could me slamming the lid closed be a factor? How about me typing? It just doesn't make any sense to me, and it seems to be scary that my new laptop, well 2 month old laptop now, has the G-sense error rate increasing by 1 every week.
If a laptop is left on, is there any subtle vibrations in the hardware that may affect the G-sense error rate values?
Could the vibration from the speakers also affect the G-sense error rate, because it thinks the vibrations is like shaking the laptop, thus affecting the G-sense error rate values?
