HDD Continuallly Being Accessed

  JNKScot 20:48 11 Jul 05

Just built new system:

Gigabyte GA-K8NXP-9
AMD Athlon 64 3500+
Gigabyte X800 Graphics Card
Creative Audigy 2 Sound Card
3x 160Gb Hitachi SATA HDD configured as RAID5 (306 Gb C: drive)
2x 120Gb Hitachi IDE HDD as storage (D: & E
Windows XP SP2 with all updates

After migrating my installation over to the RAID array using Norton Ghost & installing all drivers etc., the HDD indicator continually blinks & the system is quite slow.

I have Norton Antivirus 2005, Adaware SE Pro (latest build), Spybot & MS AntiSpyware, none of which are reporting any viruses, spyware etc.

Can anyone help please

Sorry again, further info.

Problem didn't exist when booted previously from 120 Gb IDE HDD before Ghost migration.

Yes, MS Office setup is Office XP Professional + FrontPage 2003
