hard drive problems m9457c

I just got a m9457c pavilion and everything seems to be running great until the hard drive spins up. it makes a buzzing sound and the computer locks up for about 5 seconds. after that everything is fine for awhile until the problem happens again. I've ran vistas diagnostic program and everything checks out fine. Any help would be great. I've had the computer since the 17th.

Get another boxed unit from the store.  It's a brand new PC!

Open the case to verify that the sound is coming from the hard drive.  If the hard drive is making noise, then contact HP for a replacement drive.

Re: hard drive problems m9457c

My computer purchased in December is doing the same thing... I thought it was normal because of the dual core processor... Did anyone give you a decent answer on this problem?
