    I have installed Windows 8 on my Dell Vostro 430. When resuming from sleep, the HDD make some strange noise. It look like is trying to spin, turn off, and turn back on again. Never done that on Windows 7.

    Any idea?

    Sounds like it would be a good idea for you to make sure you have everything on that disk backed up.

    That's what I was affraid of. But I've reinstalled Windows 7, and every things is good. No noise of any kind. I have read some info, and it seem that I should put it in hibernation insted of sleep. But I have not found yet where I can change the settings.

    So for now on Windows 8 I just turn it off insted of letting him go to sleep.
