    hello
    i've got a 1.5 year old inspiron laptop with a 30 gig hd
    it works great
    sometimes when my laptop is on, and i'm not working on it, there's a (quiet)
    spinning noise (with no hard disk activity)
    i can't describe it that wel

    i can only stop this when i get hard disk activiy again, such as saving a
    word file/opening a program

    should i worry ?

    This is probably the CD-ROM/DVD drive. If there is a disk in it, take
    it out. Does the sound disappear ?
