    Hi everyone

    I have a problem, I hoped someone in here could help me with.
    My Macbook (from 2008) has begin to suddenly, completely randomly to make a lot of noise. Like it is makes the noise, it usually do at startup a few times in a row. I am not even having anything in the drive. Often when I only use word.. It is this sound.

    I have absolutely no clue why :confused:

    Hope, someone can help.

    Kind regards,

    Mine makes a similar sound on start up. Mine is a late 2007 model I bought off a co-worker. I don't know if this is normal but he said it was not something to worry about (taken with a grain of salt).

    This sound is perfectly normal for slot-loading drives. No need to worry.

    I know, it is normal for start up, but I don't think it is normal that it do this sometimes five-seven times in a row when the only application running is word?
