    Hi All,

    I am new to this forum and would really appreciate your help on this issue.

    My Macbook Pro 15" [2 GHz Intel Core Duo, OS X 10.5.7, 1 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM] makes a loud crackling, chainsaw-like noise from the upper left part of the keyboard. I think it maybe the fan but I'm not sure.

    I've attached an audio clip of the noise:

    20091009 175820.m4a - 3.78MB

    OR (in case the first one doesn't work)

    How worried should I be? Your help will be greatly appreciated.

    Best,
    DyausPita

    sound

    Hey there!
    It does not sound like the HDD is about to go (I have had that when I first bought my MB-Apple faithfully swapped it for a new and better machine...Those were the good ol'times...)
    Take it in and most important, anything you care to save make copies/back up/whatever it takes.
    Good Luck!
    E:eek:

    The harddrive is located in the bottom leftside of the keyboard (to the left of the trackpad). The only thing spinning on the UPPER leftside would be a fan.

    That sounds like a fan to me.
