Specs: Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium, 1.667 GHz / 2045 MB
i have a 250gb hard drive in my laptop
since a few days my hdd (i supose it is my hdd) makes a noise like the little motor is stuck
this stays a 0,5 ~ 1 sec then its gone...
my computer starts up and shuts down even faster than before
it could just be one of my fans but if it's my HDD failing i'm Kinda screwed...
Do you know anything about this?

No way to tell unless you take it apart. If the fan is stuck, it would overheat quickly and shut down.

You need to take it apart physically and see what the noise is.
