Can a 9 yr old computer die? or just the OS?

I read everywhere that an old computer (HP Pavilion) should be replaced and will eventually die. I also read that you can revive and remove problems if you replace old XP with something newer like Windows 7. And I read that you can revive computer by replacing hard drive/disk.
I am not a techie - can someone provide info on all of the above? Don't want to buy new desk top but have Windows 7 to install if that is the way to go. What started my questions is that (rarely) it will lose connection but also read that could be overheating or simple problems, not too serious and not fatal. Thanks.
