    My "main" computer is a Gateway "Color Book II" laptop. It is
    on every day from 7:30AM until almost 6:00PM. I have been
    using it like this for about 7 years. It has a 1.6 GB hdd. Recently,
    for the first time, the hdd started to "wine" (high pitched) for about
    3 minutes. Then it became quiet and remained quiet. Afterwards,
    I still have no trouble reading/writing files to the hdd.

    Is this "wine" sound a sign that my hdd may be failing soon?

    Thanks in advance, Brad
