The hard disk is vibrating a great deal while running
Explanation: The hard disk is causing a great deal of vibration as it spins while running.
Diagnosis: Hard disks, especially newer ones, do vibrate to some extent, although this should not be excessive. Better quality disks will normally have less vibration than cheaper ones. A disk that vibrates a great deal or that starts vibrating more than it did in the past may be headed for failure. On the other hand, some vibration is not a great concern.
