Hello all,

My Toshiba Tecra laptop has worked great until now.  Its making a very
strange noise, basically like the HardDrive is really trying hard. Its
not the CDROM or the fan, its definitely coming from the harddrive, but
I'm not running any applications. I have Microsoft Anti-Spyware and
other anti-spyware packages...any thoughts on what it could be? I've
tried defragmenting and cleaning up my disk space...the noise is still
there.  Any thoughts or advice?  Thanks, Tim

1. Back up My Documents and any Program Files folders that have your
productions.  Do it now - if you can.

2. From a command prompt run chkdsk /r.  This will ask you to reboot;
type 'yes'.  Chkdsk will repair the disk. If it indicates that there are
bad sectors that have been mapped out, then start looking for a disk
replacement.  Start at , , or your
favorite supplier.
