Hey guys, so I made a post earlier about how irritated I was getting with my iMac being really loud. So, I called AppleCare, and they basically helped me reset some basic things, which didn't really help. If anything, made the whole thing even worse. I have tried to get used to it, not pay attention, you know all that, but it's seriously just driving me completely nuts. Every time I open an application, it goes completely crazy and gets REALLY loud. So, I'm thinking of dropping it off at the Genius Bar sometime soon, and my question is, is it actually worth it? Would Apple replace a HDD just because it's too loud, or would they just basically tell me to get used to it? Has anyone had to deal with anything like this before? I've had my iMac since Christmas, and it's been pretty flawless, flicker or yellow, none that I could see anyway. Thanks very much for your help P.S. I'm not sure if this has anything to do with my HDD, but some of my applications have also been crashing, especially Safari. And I get the beachball almost daily.
