Hey all, i dont know if its much of a problem because its been there since i got the system about a year ago. But my HDD makes a grinding noise, i got a video here that will give you a breif of how it sounds, i dont know if its just grinding data or what. But id apriciate any input. Cheers in advance.
Well im glad to hear that, its not constant. When the pc idles the noise dissapears, or when im running programs that dont require much activity. Its mostly on boot up and bigger programs that make it go a bit crazy.
Yup, that's very normal. You could try defragmenting your HDD and/or, in the future, you should consider an SSD for the OS - this will make a huge difference in noise and speed. Their prices are a lot better than in the past.
