It is very hard for me to hear anything, but what little I do hear sounds like a normal hard drive working as it should...Sounds like data is being written to the drive...but like I said, very hard to hear...

so it sounded like this when you got it? does it perform alright, I.E. does it read write, access all your folders alright? it sounds like a bunch of old Hard drives I used to have, but from what im seeing its a 160 gb Sata II drive and shouldnt be making that sound, my best guess is its going bad, but HP should have some HD diagnostic tools you can download, I would recomend going to their site and downloading them and seeing what their tools have to say.

I would think not, but what were the everest results? and its a new drive, so in theory its under warranty right? have you tried contacting HP about it?

My HDD sound didn't match with any of them...
So, there aren't problems, right?

That isn't a safe assumption...
