    Electronic whine/interferrance noise, appears to be coming from the HD
    Hard drive extremely noisy (very loud clicking, really sounds like its struggling)
    Fans extremely noisy at idle.
    "D" Key on the keyboard sunken in. sometimes doesnt register keystroke
    Deteriorating performance.. i "raced" it against my old clunker pc.. opening up same photoshop files and etc the pc constantly beat it.
    Frequent kernal panics ( related to airport)
    Itunes crashes when ipod is docked
    Receive constant "shocks" from the edge of the casing.
    Apple keyboard doesnt work when plugged into LHS rear USB port.

    I've ran every single maintenance thats been suggested. Hardware tests come up clean.

    My dilemma is i use this computer 100% for work, i can't afford to have it gone longer than a couple of days :(

    Emailed the salesperson that sold it to me, they've been very good to me in the past i hope i can get them all fixed.

    no matter what i still love this computer.. i just want it running the way it was designed to

    Clicking sound is usually the sign of a failing hard drive. Of course, if your hard drive is failing that will cause a series of other issues, such as a major slow down.

    How long have you had the computer and did these symptoms appear suddenly or gradually over time?

    Since late december 06.

    a few have been there from the begining.. the zapping, which i researched and found to be common, and it never really bothered me.

    the USB keyboard issue i noticed 5 months ago, but never really thought much more of it after i plugged it into another one and left it there.

    so to answer your question. Gradually! hehe
