You can get that with more than one cause.
Is the led on continuously or does it pulse like it does with disk activity ?
It can be the hard drive going bad and the system retrying on bads.
Thats easy to prove using the Everest SMART report, post that here.
Could also be an infected system, try a virus scan.
