It's from the hd, if you have an older computer than the hd is probobly loud like that. I remember my old p3 800 had a hd that was annoying like that.

Either way, whether it's coming from a network card or an HDD, they should be replaced

Since your side panel is open it might appear alot louder. But is this sound unhealth?

thats what im wondering..if thats only because with the panel off,i can hear things that i wouldnt with the panel on.Couldnt say unhealth or not though.

And its not constant.It makes "shhlip shhlip" the first time i start an internet application after a reboot.Then it doesnt make anymore.

I said network card because it seems to be related with the internet,but i dont know much about it.And the principal HD is not even 3 months old...all my apps are on it.My slave is older,but its for music only.No progz at all.
