I just build a new PC. I installed a fresh legit copy of windows XP Home and updated all my drivers, ect. After using my computer for over a day now I notice my HDD led never stops blinking for more than a second, even when NOTHING is going on. It seems to blink in a continuous rythm, like it'll blink on for half a second, then turn off for almost a second, then repeat, over and over and over! There are NO viruses on my system, I hadn't even connected to the internet before I noticed it, and all the software I installed onto my newley formatted hard drive was virus free. What is it doing? Is it even accessing the hard drive? or is it a problem with the led headers on my mobo or something?
