Hard drive RRS feed

  • Question

  • My hard drive seems to be running all the time!! I Have the latest virus protection but I cannot get the hardrive to stop with out shutting down. Does anyone know why this is? The computer is in my bedroom and I like to leave it on for automatic updates but the noise is starting to drive me crazy!! The hard drive is always running!!

  • The hard rive doesn't make noise, its the CPU fan that actually does. For your OS to be up and running the Hard drive should be on. I suggest you to clean the CPU fans and the fan located on the top of the processor. If you don't know how to do it, you can take the CPU to nearby hardware store and get it serviced.
