    Hey everyone, its me again with yet ANOTHER MacBook question!

    My Macbook has just started to make a buzz-and it wasnt there before. Its like the power brick buzz, but not as loud. Is this normal? I have also notices that the fans are now on when they wern't before-ie always. I have used CoreDuoTemp, and the temperature is ~52C.

    Thanks.

    Sounds like the infamous whine. Does it go away if you start Photobooth and have your iSight on? If so, then that's what it is and I wouldn't worry too much about it...everyone's hoping that will be fixed by Apple with a firmware update eventually.

    I'm not sure about Photobooth, but I cant check now because there is a lot of background noise (I have moved since my last post). It seems to have gone down considerably when I turned Bluetooth off.

    I'm still in my 14-day return period, I'm just wondering if Apple would take it as it now has a whooping great scratch in it :mad:.
