Hard Drive Light Won't Go Off

Even when Task Manager and Resource Monitor show no disk activity, my hard drive light won't go off. My computer has two hard drives, a 250 and a 1 TB. The 250 has Windows 8, the 1 TB has Windows 7.

If I boot into 7, it's fine.

The light is fine as the computer is doing pre-OS loading but it seems like once Windows 8 gets control of the drive, the light won't turn off.

I have the same phenomena as peter. But, in my case, it started way back with the installation of Vista - but continues into Windows 8.

    Use several different computers during a day, so specs are irrelevant.
