    Hey guys,
    I just had my MB SR making funny noises. This happened especially when i minimised my stacks bar, and there were a kind of rattling sound coming from the mb. And when I expanded the stack it dissapeared and this continued for many times.
    Any ideas??? what it could be???:confused:
    Thanks
    M'i...

    The first thing you should do is make sure that you are backing up all of your data in case there is a problem with the hard drive.
    Then you need to determine where the sound is coming from. Is it a sound effect coming from the speakers? Adjust volume and use headset/external speakers to determine.
    Put your ear close to the case and try to determine what area the sound is coming from - bottom left, top right, display, etc.
    Let us know what you find out.

    Hi Quint,
    Thanks bro, for the suggestion. Yes it is somewhat worrying. So I should backup data as soon as possible. COuld this be an isolated event??? I should lookout for the same happening again. If it happens again, i am covered by UK-HE Apple care plan and I think i should address the issue to the apple guys and send the comp to the apple people.
    Recently one adminitrative account was deleted for some reason and i had to reformat as suggested by an apple expert in my institute...!!!!
    Mac'in'...
