You can do a couple of things to check out your hdd, go to my computer, right click on you hdd (this usually is your C drive), click on properties, click on the tools tabb, and under Error-checking click on Check now. This will show you if you have any bad sectors.
You can find out the make and model of you hdd by following the same instructions above except in properties click on the hardware tabb. With this information you can go to the manufacturers web site and download their diagnostic tool, you will need to transfer that to a CD. You should go into the BIOS and make the CD-ROM the first device in the boot order so that the CD you made will boot. After you boot from the CD it should prompt you to run the diagnostics.
Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life. You never know when one will leave you.
