The blinking LED is indicating that it is constantly working. Norton security suite is what we call a resource hogger meaning it is taking the speed out of your computer. What you could is is download process explorer from the freeware link in my sig and try to determine what is keeping your PC busy.
Are you using P2P applications like Limewire?

FWIW, the HD light on my Dell 5150 blinked for about a month before the main power supply fan died.(Then the proper diagnostic lights came on!)
Are you comfortable with taking the side of the HD case off and having a really close listen to your fans to make sure they are operating smoothly?

It might be the disk indexing service that is causing the constant HDD use. You can disable it if you want.
