Whatever operation system I have on my HP Pavilion laptops, I have at least two, multi-booting. The easiest of adding Xubuntu, Pinguy. These operating systems (good quality freeware) install very quickly (~15 minutes) & easily onto and Windows hard disk. They will auto-install for most hardware, devices, networks, memory sizes, CPU, ... on your existing PC. Google Chrome, Chromium, Firefox, Thunderbird & Opera (Linux versions) all operate as always.

Other common error: USB storage (espec. flash drives) has hardware errors. More details needed here: one of my HP notebooks has two HDDs - yours too? The external drive - what kind: flash, optical FDD, HDD, USB-powered HDD, ... ?
