    The harddrive makes this chirping noise for about 20 seconds when I power on the computer, please see the link.

    please add the http www as I can't post links because I'm a new member

    After that and the rest of the time it runs fine.

    Could it be a power supply issue on startup or is there something definitely wrong with my hard drive.

    Many thanks

    It's most likely a dying hard drive. It may still be under a 5-year warranty
