I have a harddrive thats been giving me a couple of BSOD (every week too every other week). I'm running Windows 8 on an Asus laptop. Just did a HD Tune scan and getting warning on Reallocated Event Count and Current Pending Sector.

Is the Harddrive going to crash anytime soon or is this "normal".

It is failing. Those pending sectors will be relocated eventually (if your drive has enough spare sectors), or you can backup your data and do a low level format (to fors the relocation of those sectors imidiatly). If your HDD has enough spare sectors left, you can continue to use it (like I do, my HDD has 487 relocated sectors), but the chanses of the drive failing is high.
Also, it seems that you have bumped that drive a lot (G sense error rate)...

Thank you for the quick reply. Already made an RMA with Asus, so I hope I'll get it replaced! Since it hasn't run for so long under 2000 hours, I think I should be able to get a new one. :) 
Thanks for the help :)
