As to cause, age, electrical surge, bearing failure, motor failure, etc. etc. I have lost drives after two months of service (only once) and yet still have a drive that is 10 years old, but no longer in service as there is not much demand for an 8 GB HD these days. It was 8 years old when removed from active service in a Win98 system.

Hard drives can fail due to old age or environmental factors (like dropping a laptop while the system is running). The platters in the hard drive become damaged/worn out and errors start to occur. Are you experiencing a hard drive crash? More information will help others help you.

A PC or laptop that has very little physical memory will need to use the virtual memory on the hard drive allot, eventually resulting in many bad sectors on the HD. When there are many bad sectors it will crash. Scandisk can "fix" bad sectors buy telling the system not use these bad sectors.
