Hey Everyone, I purchased a MBP last February. This is my first Mac I ever owned jumping out of the PC world which I had been in for my entire computing life. I loved the thing and everything was great until this summer when I started expereincing problems. I had constant freezes followed my the clicking of the hard drive (which I knew was the slow death of my HD). It would sometimes last hours before freezing but as it went on it turned into lasting mere minutes after booting up before pinwheel, click, click, click. Then just one day it wouldnt even boot it was just a flashing ? icon. So off to the Apple Store and they told me it was the hard drive cable it would be replaced and all would be good. That was back in Septmber and I got my MacBook back and all was well again until of course this week. When it froze for the first time since I got it back followed by click, click, click. I haven't gotten to the flashing ? icon yet but my laptop pretty much only works for about an hour before it freezes and click, click, click. I'm bringing it back to the Apple store again today but my question since I really still don't know about Macs much, is this somewhat common? Did i just get a bum hard drive? Can I possibly be doing something that is screwing up the HD cable if that is infact the problem again? My MacBook gets a lot of usage but I wouldn't say overuse. It's sleeping while I'm at work but pretty much on daily at night. Another weird thing is i have a 16gb parition for bootcamp and if I boot directly to XP it doesn't freeze. No freeze no clicks works perfect (if you consider using windows perfect).
