    So, I just did a clean reformat with Windows XP media center edition yesterday and I'm having a really weird problem. Two programs, ATITools and OCCT (a CPU stability tester) make my computer make weird noises when they are running. I'm not talking through my headphones, but the computer itself. I can't really describe the noises, they're sort of a vibration, and both are different. I haven't had this problem before and I'm not having it with any other programs, so WTF?

    vibration like a fan increasing it's speed? Or like a high-pitch whine?

    Nothing like either of those. Actually, I've figure out what the sound is. Whenever these programs run, my HD activity light blinks like every 2 seconds with the sound so it must have something to do with that. Everything else seems to work fine though. :dunno:
