sony vaio vpcea3s1e disturbing hdd noise

i have disturbing "zzzzzzzz" sound whenever i attempt to reach a file or folder, and it lasts for ten seconds after opening it. It is terribly disturbing and i haven't found any solution for it.

i have also windows 7 installed on my laptop. But i do not have any noise issue when using it.

i think it all started after shrinking volume to be able to install ubuntu. at first windows did not let me shrink volume bigger than 200 mb. After that, i used recuva disk software to consolidate free space. Finally i was able to shrink.

is it a faulty hard drive or a software issue?
how can i solve it ?

thank you

Is it possible you can boot the system with Live CD and then check if same thing happening. Or you can try to reinstall Ubuntu if possible. It seems Hardware issue. But just try..

Please clone or image the disk before start.
