I bought a new notebook from Best buy about a week ago and I just upgraded
it to Windows Vista Home Premium. The software installed perfectly fine, but
there is something that I am now noticing: The harddisk makes a clicking
noise once every minute sequentially.
Now, when I had Windows XP Media Center edition installed on my notebook I
did not have this problem. I even called Hewlett Packard to see if my hard
drive is "going out." They said being that the notebook is only a week old,
that this is NOT hardware issue. Now to my question(s):
1) Do any of you notice a lot of hard drive activity in Windows Vista? I
dont mean when ur launching an app like IE7 or when ur searching for
something; I mean when ur PC is sitting idle.
2) Could my problem be the result of not installing some drivers into my
notebook? When I called HP tech support they said that the Vista drivers
will not be availiable for my notebook until mid Feb. There are two hardware
devices in "device manager" that do not have drivers installed for them. The
two devices are: Coprocessor and Unknown Device.
Please dont be too harsh in ur replies; I am a newb when it comes to Vista!
Thank you for your time,
