View Full Version : New Powerbook chirping / whining

Oct 28, 2005, 06:03 AM
The old Powerbooks are whining if you copy sth over the ethernet. Really loud it is when you click "about vlc" in the videolan player. Do the new ones have the same whining / chirping? It is very annoying. Ca. 10khz @ 40db.

sry for the answer to the post, but i cant use the edit functions.

The whining / chirping is only in the energy modes "normal" and "better performance". On "better battery life" it is really quiet.

What does "sth" and "sry" mean?

Oct 28, 2005, 06:24 AM
sth = something
sry = sorry

sth = something
sry = sorry

Contextually it was apparent what these meant bt y th fk d u btr t abv yr wds lk tht?!? It just makes things more obtuse. If you have a question and want people to understand it and answer it then consider communicating clearly.

LOL. 10khz @ 40db. I get but what is Ca. and how does this relate to your question.

sorry about the shortcuts. I hope this is the right word for it. ca. means in german "zirka". In english it means circa. 10khz is the frequence and 40db the volume.

Back to the question. Anyone here who has got a new powerbook model and can tell me about the whining or chirping in "vlc" (videolan.org) in "about vlc".

Or. If i copy something over the ethernet to my pc (personal computer :P). The powerbook makes some strange noises. I got two replacements, all with the same problem. I hope the new model which apple has sent me, wont "whine".
