I have a 2 year old dell demension 8200 with xp home edition. When I am on my computer or sometimes even when I am not the light on the A: drive lights up and I can hear it trying to access it. There is not even a disk in it, and I am not trying to access it. What could this be.

Restart you're computer
Enter the bios - normally by pressing the del key
Go to advanced options and turn off Boot Up Floppy Seek

That should do it

Just another thought, if you have MS Office installed, part of the office is a program called "Find Fast" what it does is search your drives at pre-determined intervals to index any documents it finds. If this is the case and it bugs you, you should be able to go to the control panel and change the settings or shut it off. It is on by default.
