Anyone Notice more hard drive

noise with Vista? I wouldn't have said anything but I've notice it in all three of my machines I installed it in. These HDD are less than 6 months old.
Is it just disk activity sound? If so, it's either the background defrag engine (it happens automatically now), or the search indexer doing its job. Nothing to worry about. :)
I've noticed that the gpu fans are at full throttle all the time when running vista, but I guess that's down to the visual graphics on the desktop. Either that, or the nvidia drivers are useless at controlling the gpu card.
To me it sounds like the Click of Death... Only when I install or un install something.
Hmmm that reminds me of the Windows 2000 update that decided to change my monitor settings to refresh rate it couldn't support. Fried the monitor.

Probably not anything like that though. MS has gotten much smarter...

Mkae sure SMART is turned on. It should report any abuse that is stressing the drive.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
