  • Question

  • I have a laptop that I bought one year ago. Some of these days, I always got the message when start the laptop, its message like this: "Hard disk failure is imminent. Please backup your hard disk and have it replaced ", but I can still use the notebook by pressing the F1 key. It is very disturbing me so I plan to do the replacement of harddiks notebook in the near future. Is it after I replace harddiks will also buy windows 8 and also I have a microsoft office 2010 CD, what i can use it again ?
    Please give me a solution. I doesn't have more funds to fix my laptop back to normal.

  • Since the machine must be less than a year old, it should still be under warranty - contact your manufacturer for assistance!

  • Thank you Noel. I think it might be a good solution. Look.! I have microsoft office 2010 license key in the box when I bought from the Microsoft store. Will I still be able to install Microsoft Office on my laptop and use the license key?
