    The light on my tower unit is continously on,or sometimes constantly flicking on and off very rapidly the one that tells you that the hard drive is doing something. I've not noticed this light being on continously before and the computer is responding very slowly and often freezes. I'm not sure what is causing it, I've looked in my start up list from msconfig but I couldn't pin anything there down

    Can anyone enlighten me as to what is doing this?

    i think ur hard disk space is extremely slow
    try 2 get a new one and add it to the old one
    because the old one is taking too much stress

    ALT CTRL DEL and look at the process tab, what is consuming cycles and that might give a clue.
