I'm not sure if this is an hard drive problem or software/dashboard...or what.

For about a week now, my iBook (running the latest Tiger) has problems loading dashboard. I'll hit the dashboard button for the first time and the whole computer will pretty much freeze for about five minutes, then it'll show all my dashboard items and the computer will work fine. Now I can "re-visit" my dashboard without any problems, but once in a while it'll freeze up for about 5 minutes and then work with no problem. Now, when the computer is in it's frozen state for about 5 mins, I can heard the computer "thinking", but it's a reparative thinking. I'm really not sure how to describe it. It start's with a long sound and then three short sounds. (2 second think sound, 1 sec pause, 1 sec think sound, 1 sec pause, 1 sec think sound, 1 sec pause). It'll repeat that in that order, exactly the same for about 5 mins. Then when its about to unfreeze, it'll do a long "normal thinking sound" for a few sounds and then all is well. From the sounds, it sounds like the hard drive is getting stuck? Is that possible? Or is this just some software problem. I've been wanting to reinstall OS, etc just to freshen up the computer as I have not done since since I bought the computer, but this has me worried, if the hard drive is damaged? I'm afraid it'll get stuck and won't be able to use the computer. I've tried all other programs on the computer, and they all work perfectly, except first loading dashboard and occasionally viewing dashboard after its first load.

Any ideas what's going on?

You could try removing all your user-added dashboard items. Just navigate to your Home folder, the Library, then Widgets. Drag all those widgets to another folder to disable them, and see if Dashboard returns to normal.
