I've got a laptop running Windows 8. It started crashing every week or so. Then every few days. Then every day and then several times a day. My nephew is in IT security and him, along with a couple of local techs have said the hard drive is getting ready to head south. Does this sound right or is there a quirk with Windows 8? If I have to reinstall my Windows Office, can I unregister it and reregister it on the new hard drive as long as it's the same machine?
