hdd, something making sound didn't make before

    My laptop hdd or something sounds like it is working a little harder
    than it did just before I dropped it. When it's working on something,
    it makes the same noise in succession. It sounds like a buzzing "zud
    zer on, zud zer on, zud zer on" until it stops working on whatever
    it's working on. This is while I am doing things on it, then once
    those things are done it stops.

    I have used PC Doctor 5 for Windows to check out the hdd and the CPU.
    The fan sounds normal.

    I dropped the laptop about an inch on the left side of it to the desk
    just before this started happening. It's an IBM Thinkpad R40. In case
    this has any bearing, I also was having trouble with my ext hdd
    software (BounceBack Express), which I upgraded and now it's working
    fine.

    Run a scandisk on that hard drive and check for bad sectors. If none
    then don't worry about it and *don't* drop your computer again. Let this
    be a lesson to you. You dropped your computer and it got louder to
    remind you of it.
