"Almost every EIDE or SATA hard disk includes S.M.A.R.T. data. That information is collected by the drive itself and contains data that the manufacturer considered relevant to check reliability. The data is made up of several attributes that have a current value, a worst one, a threshold, some raw data, and some flags. Basically, when any attribute's current value is below its threshold, the hard disk is considered unreliable and likely to fail. By using several techniques, this report tries to give a wider range of info, basing its analysis on advanced comparisons with normal values based on real hard disks and on expert-like checks. The final results are not to be taken as an absolute truth, but they are a very good approach to what a professional would say about your hard disk status.
Your hard disk is a ST340015A with firmware 3.15.
Your hard disk is not in the current database.
Your hard disk's temperature is 26C.
New hard disks are added as soon as valid statistics can be computed.
Come back soon to check your hard disk against a new database.
Your hard disk's S.M.A.R.T. attributes are now being analyzed and a full report about the reliability, health and status of your hard disk is generated:
Your hard disk is not below any attribute threshold. This is good.
Your hard disk was never below any attribute threshold. This is good.
Since your hard disk is not in the current database, overall ratings and pictures will be based upon realistic values, but you should carefully check the results.

NOTE: not all warnings are reflected on fitness and performance overall values as relevancy is based upon the settings from the hard disk manufacturer who is the best entity deputed to define such relationships.
The overall fitness for this drive is 97%.
The overall performance for this drive is 97%.
The link to get back and see a new report about this hard disk in the future is this. Consider that new hard disks and new checks are added over time. "
I hope those show up where it's possible to read them, if not, I'm sorry. I should probably point out that this started sometime after I'd put a CD in my CD Drive and listened to music, I have restarted several times, I've left my computer off over night hoping it'd go away, but it hasn't. I don't know if the CD drive is above the HDD or not, like I said, I know nothing about computers (fixing them anyway..)
I'm pretty sure that's all the info you'll need, but, it may not be, if I recall anything or you need more info, I'll give it to you.
Thanks in advance.
Right now it sounds like a blender. Sometimes it stops for about thirty seconds, then it starts back up...
