    Hi!
    I have a problem with strange sounds coming out of my MBP.
    Everything is shown in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0uuhLyxKjRo
    I want to fix it with izolating tape (up to 120 C).
    Is it safe, are there any other grounding bars?
    Please help me :confused:

    Sorry for my bad english
    Thanks
    Cris

    I don't know much about the problem. But if you want to fix it, wouldn't it be better if you use good conducting tape instead of insulation tape? This way, the electrical conductivity between the pins and the ground plate is preserved. If you insulate that connection you will change the potential at this point, which could lead to problems.

    Mine wasn't as bad as in that video. But I simply left it alone and it has almost entirely disappeared now.

    If you can, leave it well alone.
