    Hi everyone. I have a couple questins and was hoping if someone had an answer to any of them. My mac book is two months old and yesterday when i was charging it noticed that the power adapter was making a loud crackling buzzin noise and was wondering if that was normal? Also i hear a low buzzing noise from the lcd or part of the keyboard, i dont think its the hard drive because i know what a hard drive sounds like and this noise is constant.

    Thanks
    Edward

    sounds to me like you have a power issue they are not normal noices have you tried just simply cleaning the power adaptor seeing if there is anything in it

    Hw would i go about cleaning the power adapter? So i take it that any type of a low buzzing isn't a normal sound for the macbook in exception for the hard drive processing noise and fans?

    The low buzzing sound is normal, but it sounds to me like your MagSafe power adapter is shorting out. When you unplug your MacBook, do you yank on the MagSafe cord?

    As I've recommend many times before, instead of yanking on the cord, you can push up or down in the actual connector and that will allow you to unplug it much more easily.
