    Noisy HD?

    My PC has started making a 'wibbly' noise after saving large documents. Sometimes its worse than others.
    I think it may be something to do with the hard disk as it seems worse when the little light is flashing.
    Does anyone know what this might be?

    Oh, I forgot. If you make your documents with a really small font, they won't take up as much space on the disk.

    Neddy,

    Have a look at <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.looflirpa.com>this link</A>. It's got a great utility which will cut down on the noise.

    Hi
    A worthwhile check is to crack the case and check you didn't accidentally trap your gerbil in the wiring. They wibble like mad in the dark....

    Thanks MerC and everyone.
    That original funny noise has gone away this afternoon, but I'm now getting a buzzing noise, a bit like a large fly has got trapped.
