    1. By backup do you mean the amount of time it runs while on battery power? What was it before? Have you tried calibrating the battery? What Apps are you running while on battery power?

    2. Mysterious noises as in "Who you gonna call? Ghostbusters" or is it creaking - what does the noise sound like? If you really have to fight with it then maybe you should call Ghostbusters...

    3. At all? Take it in for repairs (Duh!)

    4. When does it become unresponsive? In what way is it being unresponsive?

    5. / 6. Maybe you need to repost the question something about speakers and fans lighting up (they are not ment to), but I think you should give writing that sentence another go...

    Send it back to apple, get it replaced or repaired. You'll still be covered by applecare

    Did you buy your MacBook in India? Maybe it is worth trying to get it replaced - to have that many problems after such a short period of time is not normal unless you have been extremely hard on your machine.

    Just a question, and I'm not trying to be alarmist - but are you sure that it is a genuine apple product - I have come across people who have bought what they thought was a genuine apple laptop in Singapore only to find out when it went in for repairs that the parts inside were to not endorsed by apple.

    Maybe you should try checking some details, firstly your Model Number should be A1278 (If you look under your mac it should say "Designed by Apple in California..." <--and then the model number

    Then the next thing to check is in "About this mac > More info... > Hardware > USB > Here the manufacturer for the keyboard and Trackpad should be listed as "Apple, Inc." if you are not sure post a pic of your screen once you have selected the USB page (You can save a screen pic by pressing: cmd-shift-4 at the same time and then use your mouse to select the area you want a picture of).

    If you do have a genuine mac your warrenty should still be valid unless you have done something to void it and in that case you should try to get the problems repaired or replaced! Good Luck.
