noisy dell 5150

My Dell 5150 (about 6 months old) is working fine, but it is often quite noisy. Sometimes it sounds like the hard disk is whirring around even when not much is being done on the PC. I have not noticed any drop off in performance...only the noise, which seems to have been like it from new. Any ideas please? Thanks, Mungo

Is it the indexing service? try turning it off. Click on an empty part of desktop and press f1 then type indexing service in search box

Pressing f1 on the desktop takes me to the Help and Support this what you mean? When I enter Indexing Service I get anumber of search results. Which should I select, and what should I do after that? Thanks.
