Ok i have heard that those noises are the hard drives arm moving but it is to often and loud i can bairly believe that a lot of that is the hard drives arm! There will be a soft huming noise that will last for a while and then sometimes there is a loud noise similiar to an electirc sander or something similiar to an power tool! it scares me sometimes because it sounds horrible and very bad! i keep expecting my computer to blow up or something!

on a comical side note, after i bought a CD burner a while ago and put it in and was burning, the first time my mother heard it i was in my room waiting for it to finish (computers in the kitchen/dining room). My mother rushed to my door and told me that the computer sounded like it was about to blow-up! she was so frightned i got scared but when i got near i realized it was just the burning process. Since then my mother coments on how it sounds like the computer is on a runway about to take off for flight (it does have a resemblance twards that sound) when i am burning something.

If the noise happens only when the CD/DVD drive is spinning a disk, then there is a vibration hum which the case is amplifying. You may need to check the CD/DVD drive mounting.

Check your CPU, case and power supply fans. These tend to be noisy when "gummed up" with dust. You can/should replace them if they need to.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.

I'd also make sure the screws holding the drives in the case are tight. It can make a big difference.
Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.

Touch the sides of the case when this is happening - does it help? If so, you case is likely resonating with the drives and amplifying the noise - try some rubber washers to isolate them.
