How can this happen? A drive dying or dead so quickly? I honestly use the computer maybe 4hours a day if that.

Hard drives can give up at any time.

Get your data off it while you can and contact your computer masnufacturer/reseller for a replacement under warranty. You'll either send the computer in for repair or they'll arrange for it to be picked up by courier.

This is known as the bathtub curve and actually pretty interesting. Read more here: Bathtub curve - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
