I got a new Dell PC XPS 420 2 months ago. However Ive had 1 problem that wont go away.
About 8-10 times since I got it the computer stops responding and the hard drive makes a small chirping noise every half a second or so for around 10 minutes and the PC wont respond or to be more accurate takes minutes to respond. The circle comes up (Vista or hourglass as its better known) as if its busy.
The chirping is like a clock as its so regular. I have spoken to Dell Support who ran through the full hard drive diagnostic which took around 3-4 hours but found nothing. Could this still be a bad hard drive or sector do you think?
If you need any more details then just ask. Thanks in advance for any help.
