After the support ended for XP I continued to use it on my computer, as well as my mother in law. My computer ended up crashing. We thought it might be the hard drive or motherboard. Which both sound really bad. A we or so later my mother in laws crashed the same at mine did. What I need to know is was this a common occurance, or coincidence? If the issue is specifically XP, should a newer version of windows get my computer up and running again?
