My 4 GB hard drive on my lombard powerbook is unacceptabley noisy. It makes a constant whining noise. It's been doing this for at least a year. I've never had any problem with the drive itself but this noise is driving me crazy. Is there any way to quiet it down. Given that it's only a 4 GB drive I've been thinking about replacing it. Will this be inviting trouble? If I do replace it any suggestions for a reliable and QUIET drive?

I don't know a way to fix a loud whine from the hard drive. Usually it is the sign of it starting to die, but like you said, its been doing it for awhile. So since its only a 4 gig, I would suggest just upgrading it. The IBM Travelstars are pretty quiet, so that's what i'd recommend.

Thanks for the response. I pretty much figured this is what I should do.
