Why does my hard drive light blink all the time?

CPU usage is nil and the light keeps working and you can hear the drive working when the light is blinking. I am running a RAID mirror using the Intel chip on my Asus board. This system has no virus.

Problem solved. MSCONFIG showed an Epson printer service running. Turned it off and everything is good.
