Hi there, I just wanted to ask a few questions to the purpose of satisfying a curiosity I have about computers (lap-tops and home PC). Are hard drive crashes common? Is there a definite cause? I have heard about desktops crashing, but I never get to know what causes it; so I’d like at least some understanding regarding this, for the effort of avoiding it. My other ‘question’ was not related with that, but I decided to just attach it. Has anyone else used Ask.com and begin to have the search answers open in a new window? It is a nuisance for me and I just wondered if something could be done. Thanks.
