Default HDD Question

sponsored links

 
I was on my computer a few days ago and my Hard Drive made a weird noise like it was winding down and then my comp rebooted. It comes on for 5 minutes and then the hard drive does it again.

Could this be a virus or is my HD shagged??

Cheers

r u still able to run the computer perfect without the computer crashing or anything?? if so, then ur hard drive is gettin knackered but still useable but may be slow at times. had to replace my HDD recently and its faster now.

if ur computer crashes alot then ur HDD is old and mayb time for a replacement or upgrade.

HTH.
regards.
