Hello.

This almost fourteen years old MBP had been acting weird these days like unable to print, losing wifi network, random errors when clicking on things, a corrupted 1.4 MB DMG download and its PKG extractions, mouse right clicks (local recovery mode's Terminal works well) not always working (even in very slow safe mode (took five minutes to boot up while holding down the two keys!), etc. I even resetted its PVRAM.

Is this very old slow original 2008 15" Intel MBP's HDD still OK from smartctl's long test and results? MacOS X El Capitan v10.11.6 Disk Utility app showed no issues.

Powered_Up_Time is measured from power on, and printed as
DDd+hh:mm:SS.sss where DD=days, hh=hours, mm=minutes,
SS=sec, and sss=millisec. It "wraps" after 49.710 days.

Error 32 occurred at disk power-on lifetime: 19446 hours (810 days + 6 hours)
   When the command that caused the error occurred, the device was active or idle.

   After command completion occurred, registers were:
