|Hard drive clicks and spins up whenever a dvd is inserted.|
Basically what happens with my computer is a noise comes from the hard drive that sounds like a click and then a spin up. This only consistently happens when I insert a dvd into the dvd player. I have a seagate 160 gb sata drive and a sony optioarc dvd burner.
I've unplugged pretty much everything else just to see if this could be related to some other problem like low power ( I have 4 fans normally but now I only have one, my psu is 350 watts btw). I also unplugged my second drive and all usb devices connected.
I have a dual boot system with Linux on one partition and XP on the other. If I try plugging in a dvd into XP then sometimes it crashes (BSOD)
Here's the output
Kernel data inpage error
(0xC05CD188, 0xC000000A3, 0xB9A31642, 0x7B945860)
Address B9A31642 base at B9A27000, date stamp 3b7d8419.
I did run a CHKDSK for XP and that finished fine and I also ran smartmontools on Linux for the said disk on "long" (33 minutes) and that checked out ok.
My motherboard is a asus m5A97 with an AMD 8510 processor with 4 gb of ram.
