Solved!

Where is the HDD activity indicator and how do you enable/disable it?

HP Recommended
HP Envy 32
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I see in the OSD Information menu "HDD Activity Indicator" status is "off".  IS there a indicator somewhere?  Is there a way to enable it because the OSD menu doesn't seem to allow it.

 

I suppose one disk is SSD and not HDD, but the other one is a HDD.

Hello
to be sure it would be necessary to know the exact model of the computer.
But for some time, and especially with SSDs, there is no longer any indicator light

Ok, seems odd that they didn't remove the option from the OSD menu.   Or say "N/A" instead of "Off" which implies there is an on somewhere.  These kinds of inconsistency bug the heck out of me.  Especially after having been a programmer for 40+ years.  I was always particular to make things consistent and logical.

I never looked for the reason why!
It doesn't have to come at a huge cost, especially now that you are being placed led for anything, anywhere.
The disk usage indicator is quite useful, I think.
This allows you to see if the disk is working, it can help start up, if the computer seems blocked!
The logic is lost !!
