Each time my hard drive activity light flashes, my computer makes a faint crackiling noise near the light. Is this okay?

Probably not. The hard disk is usually positioned close to where the light is and it is probably the hard disk that is making the noise.

I would investigate that and make sure you have backups of any important data. Unexpected noises from a hard disk is usualy a sign that something is about to break.

Go to the hard disk manufactures web site and down load their diagnostic software to check the hard disk out.
