    do you have any wireless hardware attached?.. seems more like that kind of noise to me.. 5 basic senses are good, if the drive you suspect is not doing anything unplug it.

    all i have wireless is the xbox 360 controller, but its always off(with battries removed)
    can you tell me a step by step guide how to make the hard drive not in sleepmode, im using windows 7
    i think the noise is from the hdd when it goes to sleepmode
    thanks

    go into power options in control panel & set it to "never".
