Symbol of three stacked disks to left of power button on front of CPU

Pavilion p7_1070t CTO Desktop

 

What is the symbol to the left of the power button on the front odf the CPU?  It looks like three disks stacked and a light below the symbol flashes?

Hi,

 

This is the LED that indicates your Hard Drive activity.

Meaning?  If it's flashing,  it's working? 

 

If it's not flashing, what then?

 

Thanks for the speedy response.

Hi,

 

It's just a visual indication of when your Hard Drive is reading or writing data - so if it's flashing rapidly it would indicate a lot of Hard Drive activity, less so when the LED is flashing slowly.

The led for Hard Drive activity is red in colour. The display doesnt show anything. What does that indicate?
