    So i purchased a used Black macbook in great condition in february and it is one of the best computers i have ever owned. except for these problems

    1.The clicker of the trackpad does not always click on what i am clicking on i have to press it more than once and its very anoying.

    2. The screen flashes while im in the middle of something.

    3 Also the hinges are very loose when i want to close it when i leave it about 2 inches away from closing it automaticly closes and you can just tell the hinges are very loose.

    so please help me with these problems or tell me what to do i really like this computer.

    If you have AppleCare extended warranty, bring it in to be fixed. If not, be prepared to shell out some $$ to fix it.

    When was it purchased?

    Put your serial number in here and see if you still have warranty left.

    It's either you have it or you don't. If the 1 year expired, then your SOL.

    Go price things out on www.ifixit.com If you do it yourself, that's the cost. If you want Apple to do it, take that number, and multiply by at least 2.

    Since you bought it in February*, your still covered under the 1-year Apple warranty. So give Apple Support a phone call and have your Macbook serial # ready.

    Also you can purchase extended AppleCare (3 years) within 1-year of purchasing your Mac.

    *Assuming you mean February 2009.

    He bought it 2nd hand, so we don't really know when it was actually purchased.
