A tiny little glitch in something as delicate as a hard drive can cause it to fail in time.

Another reason electronics can fail is electrical surges. Are you using a surge protector?
No there is no surge protector. I know that it is not an excuse but i have got a new FSP power supply. It should have contain surge protection, does it?

Everything works fine but the hard drive. I remember i used Norton 2009. Is there any bug with that? Can a virus cause a whole drive to be corrupt?

Ive just handed in my hard drive for warranty exchange so i will post what were the results a.s.a.p. i get it back!

Anything can happen to an electronic device, especially a mechanical one. Slight power fluctuations, too much heat, a bump or jar, faulty circuitry, anything can cause a hard drive to fail.
