 9 Power_On_Hours          0x0032   058   058   000    Old_age
Always       -       37456
  10 Spin_Retry_Count        0x0013   100   100   097    Pre-fail
Always       -       0
  12 Power_Cycle_Count       0x0032   100   100   020    Old_age
Always       -       466

-thats 37456 Power_On_Hours and 466 Power_Cycle_Count

My guess is that you're right on about your disk getting old, and should
replace asap
