Default Radio interference caused by comp.

Have any of you heard about a computer creating radio inteference on the AM band? Whenever I power on my computer, you can hear the HDD spin up on a radio tuned to any AM station, and the noise is so loud you can't hear this a problem with my power supply, or what? I would really appreciate any help.

Here's the specs for my comp:

Turbo Dreamer Case w/350w power supply w/Clear acrylic side
Athlon XP 2500+
512 RAM
GeForce FX 5200 Vid. Card
40GB WD Hard drive
17" CRT Monitor
and various other minor computer parts

Thanks for any advice.

All electronic devices give of electromagnetic disturbance in the air. That is why they say you should not put wireless recivers for wireless keyboard/mouse next to monitors or pc's.

I have never heard of hard drives effecting radios, but i suppose i have never had it that close to the hard drive? How far away is the radio from the pc???
