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.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
