HD Problem?

Postby Disturbed1 on Sun Jan 23, 2005 10:14 pm

ok iv had this problem,well doesnt happen until i leave computer for 5 to 10 minutes.
If i do leave it for that amount of time my HD light contantly flashes and i hear the noise of the hardrive been used,but its not ur usual sound as if it loading something for a short time it goes on until u move the mouse or press a key.
I thought hm maybe the power options has something to do with it so i go into the options where it says the times when hardrive turns off and such,on my mates and brothers computer they are set to (never),i set mine to never didnt solve the problem.
I cant seem to find out whats goin on,maybe the HD is defragging when not been used for some time,cant find an option on how to stop or put a solution to that,if any1 on here knows anyway to help id be grateful for answers.

Silly suggestion m8 but might help you sort things.....

Download..

Adaware SE

and update them n scan pc.

The run antivirus after you have rebooted the pc... see if that helps.

It could be as simple as doing a nice HD defragment... some times when you keep installing new programs and deleting old ones.. you file system can get a bit confuse and start looking for files in the wrong places.. by defragmenting the HD you automatically give you computer all the right directions.
