    Please Help me!
    MacBook is doing annoying noises, and it just won't stop! It started happening ever-since I tried to work once with the Final Cut Pro.
    It's like the fan is working very-very hard, I tried SMC and NVRAM and it won't stop! I feel like I need help ASAP because I have a lot of work to do, but this noise is so annoying I can't even sit down next to it for like a second.
    Thanks for your help.

    BTW, I have white MacBook (May 2010), 4GB and 250GB (200GB are free).
    Thanks

    If you want people to help you you need to record it and upload it somewhere so they can listen to it.

    It can be 2 things I think, HD or Fan(s).

    Hard to say, I don't know which noise to listen to, there is kinda knocking sound, a short sound in the beginning and a background sound, if it is the background sound/noise it seems like the Fans, but again, hard to hear.

    iFixIt has guides for that.

    Btw, do you hear the sound upon a fresh restart without having opened FCP (whatever version you use) yet?

    When the computer is shut-down, there isn't noise, but once I'm turning the computer again, even before the gray screen is coming up, The noises are back.
