False conclusion. You're conflating events that happened at very different times on two different systems based on a seeming pattern in the symptoms.
Laptops fail, they fail often, and sometimes they fail straight from the factory. Where do you think refurbished units come from? People think that laptops being "portable" means they can carry them around wherever, whenever, etc. The reality is that you're just asking for a HDD head crash if you do that. Portable with a laptop means you can move it with relative ease, AFTER you've shut it down. HDD failures is one of the single most common failures among laptops because people just go walking around with them while they're turned on. They also don't tend to carry them with more than one hand and don't support them properly, so you get stress damage on the solder joints that accumulates over time to cause solder joints to go cold. That can lead to very expensive motherboard replacement fees.
Without more details about the specific errors and what preceded them, all you have is an interested coincidence, not proof that there is something in your environment killing your computers. It doesn't rule out that possibility, but there are a lot of other, more plausible possibilities that you should rule out first.
Okay, this may seem like a stupid question, and I thought it was too, at first. A couple of months, maybe a year, back, my desktop started acting weird. It didn't connect to the internet, it would blue screen, et cetera. So, I had it looked at. They thought the solution was a wiping of my hard drive. Then, a month or so afterwords, it wouldn't boot. Why? No hard drive detected. Okay. I looked into it. Oh, the hard drive is failing. I'll have to get it replaced. Skip to now.
I'm working on my laptop. I go to boot it up. No internal hard drive found. This thing is brand new! Only a couple months old! It can't be doing this. It starts blue screening, et cetera. And then I make a connection. There must be something that is causing my computers to do this. I need to know what it is and how to fix it. Maybe someone is sending me a virus through the unsecured internet I use, I don't know. But both computer, brand new, basically, are having this problem. Both internal hard drives can't be failing! There has to be something more! They barely have anything in common except: they both are HP and they both run some type of Windows.
