When I switch on my dell dimension pc it is relatively quiet, but when it's been on for about an hour the hard drive gets very noisy, like the fan is doing overtime.
It seems to have coincided with this recent heatwave we have been getting lately, but can't be 100% certain of that.
The hard drive doesn't feel hot or anything. It is in an enclosed part of the desk with a door on the front.
Does anyone have any ideas?
