Sometimes the hard disk of the laptop might crash. The hard disk crash has some symptoms. There is a deterioration in performance just before the hard disk fails completely. You might hear sounds of motor attempting to spin up, fail, and then retry a number of times from your laptop. The hard disk crash happens due to the head crash. The read-write head of the disk might land on the rotating platter instead of retracting to its safe zone and thus damages the magnetic film on the disk surface. If there is any dust in the hard disk, then there is great possibility for the hard disk crash. A mechanical shock applied to disk and poor power supply also causes the hard disk crash. You might lose all your data that you have saved in the hard disk.
