I'm using an OEM windows 7 home premiun laptop.
Lately my laptop freezes randomly.
so i first tried reformatting it using the acer erecovery tool but same problem.
next i tried using the windows recovery partition( i have 2 recovery partitions;i'm guessing 1 is acer's and the other is windows') i press the f8 key and a black screen appears saying windows is loading files. the load bar only loads a little bit and then i get another screen sayin i have an error because of failing hard disk (sorry i cant remeber the whole message) but in the bottom i get this:
info: an unexpected I/O error has occurred.
I'm guessing my hard disk is failing. and if i want to change my hard disk will this affect my OEM windows? Any help is much appreciated. Thank you.
