    It's on its way out. I'd be surprised if it survived another dozen
    reboots.

    I ran the event viewer and this is what showed up, probably at the time
    I could not boot up. I don't know why after several boots it was fine
    but that one time it wouldn't boot. I already got an RMA going and I
    backed up the drive, what a PIA!!
