cpu grinds when it is reading HD.
Posted on 2003-03-28
Just curious: On some older pc's, something (either the cpu or HD) makes a grinding noise as it is responding to user input. Such as opening software, a file, or anything. What is that noise, why and is there anything to do about it? It's not a particular speed, brand or style of computer. I've noticed it on miscellaneous pc's seemingly after they are older.
Sorry if this question seems too vague.
