I have a 2008-era MacBook Pro. In January it failed to boot. I took it to Apple and paid for a replacement system board. When it came back they told me the hard drive was also bad and they had replaced it.


About a month later my performance became very bad. A test of the hard disk revealed unrecoverable errors. I reformatted the disk and restored from Time Machine. About a month later, the same problem surfaced. This time I took it back to Apple and they put in a replacement hard drive.


Now here I am about a month after that and the hard drive has asked to be reformatted twice again.


What is REALLY wrong and how do I get it fixed?

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.3)
