    Hello, people, i got a macbook but fortunately it does not have that MOO sound

    But ... there seems to be quite a squeaky noise, not exactly loud or anything, but its just quite annoying sometimes.

    This occured only to me after 3 days of using my macbook

    1. It occurs whenever i plug my magsafe power connector or any USB, or LAN devices. If i run on batery itself it is much less quiet.

    Is the macbook meant to run perfectly silent (when u are just using safari?)
    Or do u have to put your head close to the laptop to hear those normal computer sounds???

    and this noise also comes on whenever i use my touch pad...

    The noise is a squeeening sound (like one of those high pitched noisses) comning from the magsafe port and the USB ports side....

    sounds like what your talking is the dreded cpu wine or wine when your cpu is idleing. Its a known problem that is effecting just about every macbook and macbook pro. One fix is to run photoboth in the background bringing your cpu usage up but it also increases heat and reduces battery life at the same time. As an alternate there are programs like QuietMBP out there that do the same thing.
