Your computer typically doesn't just fail. It will give you hints. For example runs slower, makes noises it didn't before, freezes. These are indications something has changed and not for the good.
Recently had a customer who heard ticking coming from the hard drive. Let it go for over a month. It finally failed. Sent it out to a recovery lab and found the read/write heads had scratched the media inside. Making the drive unreadable. When the ticking started the data could have been saved. Also they lost wedding pictures and accounting data for their business.
So if your computer is acting differently than it has in the past. Attend to it right away.
