Re: Seagate HD Seek Noise
I have a dell and it came with a seagate hard drive and I had the same problem you're having. The HDD seek was loud and I never knew why. I ended up getting a bigger hard drive but the old one (the seagate) still works fine. Maybe it's just the model you got or something.
Also my western digital is slightly quieter but not much. It could be the dell cases, there's really not much besides a crappy side panel which is made of flimsy metal.
Desktop: Dell Dimension E510, 2.5GB RAM, Intel P4 3.0GHZ, 250GB HDD, Windows Vista Premium. Might not be the best, but the old girl is still running good.
