Hi,

My hard drive works fine. No 'bad sectors', recently defragged without any problems, no data lost.

However, from time to time when I try to do something (eg, open a word document, access windows explorer, start media player - different each time) the hard drive starts audibly 'grinding', and while the computer does eventually do what I ask it to, it can take 1-2 minutes to perform the task.

In the interim, everything else works fine - IE, MSN, whatever.

Once this problem comes along then it happens for some time. I can also reset the computer and it's fine again.

Can anyone please tell me why this is happening and what I can do about it?

The computer is about 6 months old.

I'm running XP SP2 and Nod 32.

My HDD is at about 25% utilisation.

Thanks for your help,
A.
