So my laptop has been something strange as of late. If i leave transmission on to download my torrents I have no issues. I'll leave it on all day and come back to it with fans at max. If i close all my programs and just surf the net the fans are pretty much stuck on max speed and its very loud and annoying and wont go away until a restart. I also have been getting alot of lag for opening programs. For instance after a fresh restart and waiting for things to settle, if i open safari i cant do anything with it for a good 10 seconds while it "initializes" so to speak, and it always seems to act sticky and laggy most of the time. It has never done this before and I have reinstalled leopard but it is always the same. Im thinking its a hardrive issue. Can anyone hear their hardrive alot when doing things like this? It just seems like any hardrive intensive tasks completely kill my computer in doing anything Also i have some other problems that i wonder if apple can replace my laptop for: Weird buzzing from headphone jack i DO have the yellow screen when looking from an angle Laptop battery is 188 cycles and 81% as of now and i recalibrated the battery already Hardrive possibly ready to go^^^^ issue at the top Dvd drive scratchs my dvd's when i watch a movie etc Laptop seems to get overly hot So what's my best way of getting these genius' to possibly replace my laptop? I'll be heading to the store tommorow.
