Brand new Aspire ATC-780 AMZi5 has a noisy (grinding) hard drive.
Looking inside the case, the 2TB Hard Drive is mounted vertically (on its side).
Do you think the vertical mount of the drive is inducing the noise?
Does anyone have experience remounting a Hard Drive horizontally (large surface parallel to the ground)?
I am concerned about eventual failure. A SSD will be installed soon and the OS moved onto it. However, I still want a large amount of storage in a secondary drive.
All suggestions welcomed
