  • Since installing vista i have noticed my hard drive seems to be constantly being acessed or at least the hard drive light is constantly flickering.

  • i think that your RAM is low for the vista and its applications  to run.

    It may be due to the swapping of pages form the virtual address space constantly as the RAM is full.
