Question about Computers & Internet
Recently i have purchased an harddisk 160 GB . I have installed winxp and software required for windows.
when i was copying the files to harddisk the sound is comming like fan while it working.
what is the problem. it will affect to motherboard or not.
can any one find me the solution
And if you mean the harddrive then no issue
usely the harddrive begins to make sounds because it is working
but if you got a new hardrive from todays 2008 hardrives and it is one of those silent ones than somethings wrong
but usely older harddrives make noise when at work

Do you mean the fan is running more loudly?
It's possible the additional heat from the hard drive is raising the temperature inside the case. Most fans are thermostatically controlled (they run more the hotter the PC is) so you'd expect this.
Will it affect the motherboard? If the the fan is running properly, no. The PC should shut itself down before thermal damage occurs. Make sure you don't have it tucked into a space where there's no airflow.
Make sure all the vents are clear (vacuum if necessary); I will even open the case and vacuum, but if you don't know what you're doing, I don't recommend this.
