Helllooo Experts,

I have an Advent computer that appears to have some odd behavior.There
are two small lights on the top front of the case, and one appears to
have a fairly steady light. The other is very different - most of the
time it is blinking and very often it shines for a few minutes with a
strong light. When the Internet connection is shut down, it still blinks
off and on for many hours.

I paid attention to the Task Manager but I was not able to find any
correlation with the blinking. The Processes and the Services were all
quiet. I had never seen this before in computers. Ouch!!! I just noticed
the tick "Show processes from all users" in a little box at the bottom
of the Processes page. Shame  :-(  on me.  Is this new?

Suggestions invited.

The blinking light sounds typical for a hard drive activity indicator.
