Since about a week ago, my computer has been making a grunting noise lasting about 1 to 2 seconds. happens randomly. I would be doing absolutly nothing and it still makes this noise. Do you think there is something wrong? If you don't understand tell me or ask me, and i will try to make it so you can understand me.
thanks

Could be a fan, but sounds more like a failing hard drive, what you can do is goto the hard drive manufactures site, and download the diagnostics, then run them, and see what it shows...

About the easisest way is look in Device Manager under Disk Drives...

Or you can go here Aida32, download and install Aida32, it should tell you what HD you have, if not you will have to take the case off and look at the hard drive to see what you have...
