The led light is plugged into the mobo correctly, the problem is that the hdd light stays on all the time when i turn on the computer. It only starts to blink if i put it on standby or hibernate, and after it comes back on the hdd led starts blinking. It may be controllable from the bios but i have no idea.
i have 256mb ddr, so i think i have enough ram. i thought the plug was put in wrong but when i put it in the other way the led didn't come on. it just stays on all the time, unless i go to standby and come out of it, then the led starts blinking.
i make sure i keep memory usage to a minimum. if i am caching programs to the hd when the computer starts, how come the led is constantly on even when the computer is idle? if i turn it off and turn it on again the led stays on all the time. the led starts blinking only after the computer comes out of standby.
I don't know what the problem is then. I've seen it crop up when the system was using a lot of virtual memory (even when the thing is idle), but if your memory usage is low enough, I don't have an explaination.

Have you done what JasonR suggests you, cause I've had the same problem and plugging it the other way had corrected the problem... And from my (little) experience, it's the only reason I've met for this issue.
