Hard Drive Light keeps on blinking

By excel_gid ·
One of my cousin has a Intel's P-II 300 system with a seagate 4.3 GB Hard Drive with an Intel 810C Chipset motherboard (Biostar).
Its Hard Drive light continuously keeps on blinking with a short interval of 2 seconds.
Can anybody help me solving this problem.

you don't indicate if he's having any problems actually using the computer.

ya know, often windows itself will access the HDD when no other activity is taking place, simply to update the swapfile pointers.

If office is installed, make sure FastFind is either turned off or disabled. Check the control panel.

This may be from applications running in the background and also due to Power Management being accessed while computer is on.Try disabling Power management to see if this stops.
It does not cause any problems when the system is in operation with other programs.
