    #4324098 - 06/22/05 11:12 AM (12 years, 1 month ago)

when i boot up windows it makes a sound like when you slide a kitchen
chair across the floor, like a mechanical fart noise
when i try to scan a pic. to the the comp it just makes that noise and wont stop untill i kill the program.
I usualy run debian and have never heard any unusual noises, ever.

mmm i've got a bit of the opposite - i have an external harddrive that is silent when i run windows, but makes a little clicking noise when i run debian. :shrug: no clue what it is, though.

Its probably the hard drive getting slammed for page filing when your machine runs low on memory.

If it is that loud it is probably a bad hard disk...linux is usually much more adaptable to such failures.

Good idea. Also, how old is your HD? I've noticed the older models were rather noisy. Besides, it might be time for a new one, in any case....

By the way, are you sure that's your HD you're hearing? It just occured to me that the A drive (floppy drive) can make a noise similar to the one you described....
