Well i figured out what it was, i had a HD cooler attached to the HD and the molex connector the the cooler was crap and it caused the drive to recieve and not recieve power over and over which was the spinup/down i was hearing. So i removed that and it no longer makes that noise, but now I cannot load into windows (sits at the loading screen). I used the windows CD to start up and went into recovery mode where i then ran CHKDSK. This gave me an error "The Volume appears to contain one or more unrecoverable problems."
....i guess i will reinstall windows if i can, because my data is pretty much gone unless you guys can help me out
ALSO: It is a 2 month old Western Digital SATA 120GB 7,200rpm drive
