Question about PC Desktops
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.

Click on the "Advanced Options" button when the Windows recovery manager appears. Choose the "System Recovery" option from the list and click on "Next."
Click "No" to decline using the Microsoft system restore and click "Next." Note that HP computers have their own restore system.
Click on "Back up your files first (recommended)." Click on "Next." Follow the instructions given to you by the recovery manager for backing up your files.
This is your opportunity to back up any important or original files before you reset the HP computer to its original settings.
Save these files to removable storage devices such as DVD disks, CD disks, alternative hard drives (that you are not performing a system reset on) or flash drives.
Click on "Next" when the screen reads "Recover without backing up your files." Note that after you proceed with this step, you will lose any and all information on your Hard Drive that you did not back up.
Restart your computer after it has finished the recovery procedure. Visit the HP Support and drivers website and click on the option that says "Download drivers and software (and firmware)." Enter your computer model number (find this on the front of your tower) and press "Enter."
Download the most recent drivers and save them on your desktop. Double-click the driver package and follow the on-screen instructions to install the drivers.
Insert your removable storage device that contains the files that you backed up. Copy the files to the appropriate places on your hard drive.
hope this helps
