You have run anti-virus check but have you scanned with anti-spyware like adaware click here or spybot search and destroy click here

It sounds as though the hard drive is being constantly accessed (read from or written to). Open the Task Manager, select the Processes tab and look to see if anything is using an excessively high percentage of CPU resources.

When the PC isn't doing anything, the "System Idle" process should be showing 90% or over. If another process is showing a high percentage, that could be the problem item.

Not left a disc in one of the drives have you.Maybe your anti-virus running a scan.When red light is on go into Task Manager and see what is using up most of the CPU.
