Just got my new PC yay, it's pretty high spec, just one question- the little battery logo LED flickers every second even when the PC is idol. Is there any problem with that, also about 10 minuites into the system being booted it still sounded like the system was struggling intensly... hmmm?

Is this a laptop? Is it running vista? Because that takes a long time to quite down after booting a good ten minutes.

Could "the little battery logo LED" possibly be the hard drive LED?

Yes lol, it is the Harddrive LED is it normal that it flickers even when doing nothing?

Constanly even when idle? makes a little groan sound as well, very slightly.
