  1. are your data files backed up?
    Is the crunching sound definitely coming from the HD, not a fan or power supply?

    Not sure what your question is, but if the noise is coming from your HD, then crunching = bad.
  2. no its not a fan the sound is coming from the front of the pc case i opened it and listened closely it was from the HDD but now the sound stopped im not sure wuts going on if it comes back ill post again
