    Recently I've been watching many DVDs on my 13" 2011 MBP, and I've noticed that its been getting really noisy when I start playing my movie, noisy to the point that I can hear it even though my volume is on max, it vibrates quite a bit as well. How can I fix this because it was never like this before.
    And one more thing... when I'm watching a movie and I lift the laptop to get up or something I hear a scratching noise like the DVD is hitting something inside. Is that normal or is damaging my MBP?

    Thank you :)

    Most likely there's a part loose in the optical drive. Since its a 2011 model, take it to an Apple Store. Free fixing :D

    Where I live we don't actually have official apple stores, but there are the licensed resellers of apple products like iStyle and iSystem.

    Do you think they can repair it?

    We have no idea where in the world you are so...

    Couldn't hurt to ask them.
