    My Powerbook G4 recently started doing the HD clicking and squealling noise. So I changed the HD and everything worked great for about a day. Now there is a new Humming/Ticking noise coming from the area where you plug the power supply in.

    If i tap in that area, it will go away for a couple minutes and then it comes back again. Sometimes it will just go away on it's own for a few minutes too. It doesn't change if I unplug the power or anything.

    Has anyone else had this problem or know what this is? It is driving me absolutely insane! Please help.

    It could just be another dud HDD.

    I thought that too, but I thought that the other clicking noise for the Hard Drive sounded like it was coming from behind the mouse pad where the HDD is located.

    I guess it could be that. I'll see if anyone else has a theory and then I'll try returning the hard drive and see if that's the problem.
