Hello freinds

I have bought new PC with details as below:


Main Board: GIGABYTE EP43T.

CPU: INTEL E7500 2.9 GHz core 2.Duo

HDD: seagate 1T barracuda 7200.12

RAM: Transcend 2 G DDR2

POWER: 380w

GRAPHIC CARD: GeForce 9400GT 1GB

DVD-ROM: pioneer



Unfortunately, after installing win XP 32bit SP3 , my hard drive Running even when I'm not doing anything. it has period about 1 second . I mean each 1 second HDD's light turn on and I can hear a very little voice from HARD.I changed my hard drive , but didn’t effect. New one has the same problem.

I surfed on the net and found that many people have same problem, but there is no solution for it. I did all of suggestions like disable search index, disconnect DVDROM , and virus scan with up to dated NOD 32 (although it wasn’t necessary because I have installed windows only) but problem is still exist.

what should I do?

thx,

Reza

Normal operation. With all the things that are on computers you will have drive activity most of the time. If it's only a flash and not constant I wouldn't worry about it.
