    Alright, I've been doing some searching and I've found nothing quite exactly same to the problem I'm having with my hard drive on my Macbook, Late 2007. 2.2 GHZ and 4 GB of OWC ram.

    Here's the Hard Drive:

    Capacity: 111.79 GB
    Model: ST9120822AS
    Revision: 3.CAE
    Serial Number: 5RM0GDF5
    Native Command Queuing: Yes
    Queue Depth: 32
    Removable Media: No
    Detachable Drive: No
    BSD Name: disk0
    Mac OS 9 Drivers: No
    Partition Map Type: GPT (GUID Partition Table)
    S.M.A.R.T. status: Verified

    I'm getting a small beeping noise, just every 30 seconds or so, or sometimes sooner than that. I have no idea why it's making the noise and it's not generally writing something or downloading when it makes the noise. And just to clarify a bit more, it's a very very faint beeping noise. I haven't ran the disk utility yet, but I'm wondering if that would even fix the problem.

    Or should I even worry about it at all?


    Any suggestions?
