I have a Dell computer that is about 4 years old. Last June the hard drive crashed and I had a Western Digital installed. It lasted about 3 months and the WD crashed. It was under warranty so the shop put in a no-brand name hard drive. Today, it started giving me the same blue screen of death I had with the other two hard drives. "Cannot write to Drive C. Data may be lost" or something to that effect. Something has to be causing these brand new hard drives to crash. I'm just a basic user who does mostly internet. I do not download music, I have all my antivirus, firewall, spybot, adaware installed and current. I use email (Outlook Express) and Yahoo Messenger and that is about it. I surf and communicate and that is it. I decided it is just time to get a new computer but out of curiosity does anyone know what could be causing these new hard drives to crash?
