I have a Dell Latitude CSx (Pentium III) with an IDE harddrive of unknown make/model. So far, I have resisted the urge to open my computer and examine it. About 3 weeks ago, while trying to install a docking station, my configurations were trashed. So far, the only thing I have not been able to fix is the harddrive. Now, it spins continuously, making a high pitched noise. It never did that before. I have found no one who knows how to resolve this by setting or software. The only suggestion I have gotten is to replace the hard drive. Before I take that step, does anyone have any suggestions on how to resolve this issue? thanks in advance.
