Type eventvwr in the start search box. Look for any errors ... it could possibly be due to an outdated driver.

thank you, so i think i need a new hard drive.

The SMART self-test on disk SAMSUNG SP2504C on port SATA 0.1 has detected a failure.
A read element of the test failed. Please back up your data and replace the hard disk.
