    Two months ago, I got a new Gateway GT5464 desktop computer. It has 320 GB SATAII hard drive (Hitachi is listed as the manufacturer). It has always been a pretty noisy drive, especially if it is really busy, and I'm wondering if this is normal. This is the first hard drive I've had that is this big (well, it's big for me anyway).

    I would call Gateway and explain what is going on. So at least they have it on record and your concerns. They might even have you take it into one of their stores (if you still have one open near you?) Actually I would insist on it.

    Also ask what the warrantee is on the drive. Ive been purchasing large HDD's for customers now that have minimal of 3 yr up to 5 yr warrantees for such reasons.
