My Hard Drive Crashed

I have a HP X856 Pavillion that I bout 7 months ago.

Saturday I was downloading a song from LimeWire and my computer froze. Alt-Clt-Del wouldn't work so I had to shut the power off and on again.

When it started up again I got "Operating Sysytem Not Found".
The recovery cd wouldn't work and FDisk wouldn't work either.

Do you think it was caused by LimeWire or I just got a lemon for a computer ?

Eeew....that's no fun.

I doubt Limewire had anything to do with it, though.
