Default harddrive going nuts!

hmm sounds weird. You might want to run one of those programs that check if the hdd is ok. You should find the program from the manufacturers website.

Who makes the hard drive?? And is it making any unusual noises?

You better backup your files. Maybe its manufacture defect, do you still have warranty? and your trying to sell that computer? i feel bad for the person who buys it.

?? im not selling the harddrive, and if i was i would clearly state that there is something fishy with it, i dont rip people off


its a hitachi deskstar came in my dell 8300 a couple years ago, all i did was reboot and it fixed it?? i think i need a new one anyway, it whines every once in a while, its been through a lot... , this is my excuse to get a SATA

Have you checked what applications you have running in your task bar,like the ones on boot up. Muz379 has the right idea i think, have you got some application that needs a internet connection to connect to a server and is drawing resources of your pc, if you are on wireless have you got your network encrypted? otherwise your pc will be wide open to poaches/hackers.

If you want to check your hdd go to MY COMPUTER, right click C/DRIVE, PROPPITIES, TOOLS, now select error checking SELECT NOW and restart your computer, it will now scan your hdd for errors and fix them if possible.

I'd highly recommend that you use the manufacturers program instead of some crappy thing that came with windows.
