Thanks Elaine

Did the old HD got replaced by the new one?
Or is the new one added to the old one?

Did windows XP got installed on the new one?

If a shop installed it, take it back and let them listen to the noise, if it is a faulty drive then you want to find out now, not after installing programmes and adding important data
