    Why is the hard drive light constantly on? I have no other programs open, only google chrome. It keeps flashing quickly.

    when it does not flash is the time to worry

    the light signifies something is working,probably in the background not just the hard drive

    i.e

    mail checking
    update checking
    virus scanner running ect.
