  1. Thanks for all the help so far. I have been reading a lot, but I still have some problems.

    At random times during the day, whether looking at the web or playing games, My computer freezes up for 5-15 seconds and I hear something from the Hard Drive. Anyone have any ideas?

    That doesn't mean it can't be dying.

    Backup all your data; as most likely your hard disk have some mechanical issues, and it would be good idea to get it replaced in warranty.
