E6500 HDD vibration and LED blinking

Hi

I've just installed on the new E6500 Win XP and noticed that chasis is vibrating especially when I put it on the wooden desk.

Also HDD LED is blinking every 1-2 secs when no activity.

I did all upgrades if BIOS , DCP ( really bad soft) , camera, chipset, bluetoth , Intel matrix driver & program and other Urgent and recomened sofr from dell page.

Is it normal on the E6500 ?

I've already stopped bying next E series for my company till Dell will be again reliable.

I still have my old D610 and use it in evening as my wife is complaining that new E6500 is working too noisy to sleep 😉

I had the same issues 5-6 yrs ago with HP and then swiched to Dell , but now also Dell is doing the same, introducing to the market beta versions of laptops

Re: E6500 HDD vibration and LED blinking

Also seeing the HDD LED blink every second  for WinXP and WIn7 when there should be no activity.  HDD LED does not blink for Ubuntu 9.10. Tried deleting nearly all processes and using Process Monitor (ProcMon). Any ideas?
