I will check out the diagnostic tools referenced here...but is there a simple way to find out which of my 3 HD's is being noisy when the desktop starts.
1 My main 1Tb HD
2 An old 30 Gb HD
3 An older 30 Gb notebook HD
I'm hoping it's #3.
Is there possibly a way to temporarily disable #2 or #3 using my Bios to do a simple 'listening test'? I really don't feel like opening the case up right now.
I'm running Win 8, loaded on HD #1.
