A noisy hard disk is definitely abnormal.

 

Contact HP for warranty service. 

 

If the service engineer suggests sending you a hard disk for replacing it on your own,  ask for them to also send a factory produced USB recovery flash drive because you have been unable to create one .

Hi

Thanks for your help.

 

I'm still trying to get this resolved!

 

Because the pc is less than a month old I was told i could send it back for repair/ refund/ replacement.

 

I'm a bit reluctant to do this with the amount time i have spent in setting this PC up along with all the downloading of a NEW OS as soon as I plugged the pc in! On a metered internet this is NOT good.

 

I was told that due to the size of the drive 2TB it would be noisier than the drives in my other HP PCs!!!!!

 

I cannot see that can be true! but willing to be proved wrong!

 

Any help will be very much appreciated

 

Thanks
