What is my harddrive doing? v/ flash

I'm getting tired of this.

Youtube video websites and my HD starts grinding for a few secs every 15 secs. It can't be healthy. I can CTRL+ALT+Delete, and end plugin container and that shuts it up, BUT WHY THE **** IS IT DOING THAT?!?

It's like a neurotic windows thing going "oh, i'll swap that..... oh i'll swap that" It even continues when i close the tabs down running flash

Yes, old box running XP w/ 1 gig ram

Edit: The HD sounds make it hard to wank

If it was an SSD, it would be dead by now, i mean, WTF.
It's so annoying i've begun to close down FF and begin a new session just to get rid of the constant grinding

HD could be dying. Or it could be that ancient install of windows deciding it has cancer.

HD dying sounds different, old ass install could be it, i'm just tired of the grindage and curious as to what the fuck the disc access is.

It does it as soon as some jewtube is loaded, and i can end it by killing plugin container - And it starts before running out of memory, even with FF's memory leak.
