As can be read in this topic, I'm having problems with the HDD light on the front of my computer. It is almost constantly on, even when I'm not doing anything with my computer at all.
Also, ever since it started, my computer is very slow. It seems like it's constantly busy doing things, the problem is that I don't know what it's doing.
As you read in the old topic, I've already replaced the HD for a brand new one. I've cloned my old drive onto the new one, and the problem persists, so I guess it has something to do with the things on the drive, and not with the drive itself. The problem with the noise that is mentioned in the topic is solved.
On my MsConfig screen, there are a lot of services checked, is this normal, or could this possibly be causing some problems?
I'm running Windows Vista Home Premium (64-bit) on an Acer Aspire M1641. The computer is about 6 years old and I've replaced the power supply and the graphics card (and the HD, of course).
I've also created a factory-reset disk using Acer eRecovery software. So, if necessary, I could reinstall Windows on my old HD to see if it would work. However, I'd rather keep it in the current state (with all the files still on it) so I'll have some kind of backup if my new drive would ever fail. If someone thinks reinstalling windows would work, I would try it though.
