There are no 'servers' assigned to a particular country. When you request a web-page, depending on traffic loads, it may bounce through any number of servers in any number of countries. There is also no guarantee that it will ever bounce through the same sequence of servers in the same order. Maybe it would make more sense if I said 'relays' instead of servers?
It may also be that a certain portion of the network is experiencing heavy traffic loads during different times of the day. It is really hard to say what the issue may be as it can really be any number of things; weather, network maintenance, etc.

No. If the hard drive crashed, then the computer isn't working. There would be no way to remote into the computer. If you pardon the analogy, that's a bit like saying that once your auto runs out of gas, you can just drive it to the gas station.
