sound of hdd

hi i was just wondering, with my old pc my hdd never made a noise at all. and now i have a new powerful one, it keeps making a constant weird noise and i wonder if it is normal. are there any wavs out there i can download to hear a healthy hdd. lol.

Sure it's not a fan?

nah its like a noise i always hear but never on my old pc. on someone elses pc i hear that noise. its like a slight grinding noise, but it kinda sounds healthy. i may be mad.

Slight grinding sound could well be the hard drive sound, but does the sound coincide with the red hard drive light being on? That should pin down whether it's that or not.

If it's really continuous, all the time the computer is on, it needs further investigation unless you are using GoBack which makes the hard drive word hard.

cani get more info on goback please. and it does coincide with the hdd led, it flashes along with the sound.
