Ive been having problems with my HDD. When my computer is off, my hdd stays on and makes a wierd sound inside and HDD light blinks. When i turn on the computer, everthing is fine. The wierd sounds that im hearing from the HDD sounds like a DVD drive when its reading a DVD, somewhat. plz help thanks.

Tou mean when you shut the computer off , Start>Turn off computer>Turn off, the hard drive is staying on ?

Or, Do you mean when the computer is on,but not in use, the hard drive stays on ?

Im talking about whenever the computer is shutdown & powered off. That is when the HDD LED begins to blink every second and you can hear a sound inside coming from the Hard Drive. When powering on the PC, it goes to normal and does not blink or make any unusual noices.
