My iMac is only two years old, and up until a recent move has worked wonderfully. I have had no problems at all with it. A month or so after I moved, I returned home from work to hear my computer continually making the noise (now bear with me as I try to describe it) - it is the noise you hear when a program will not open due to an error, or if you hit the wrong key etc. Sort of sounds like a thud? ** I just searched my Mac sounds and have discovered it is called FUNK. Probably the most annoying sound ever I restarted the computer, but that did not help. When any sort of typing area is presented (say to enter a password or if you're in a text program) it is as if the computer has a mind of it's own and text starts to type - random jibberish, of course but with each letter comes the sound. You can try and delete the text all you want, but it won't help - it just keeps on typing, which prevents me, as I said, from typing as with every two letters I type the computer types 10 more in between It is really a bother, and I hope I will find some answers here I figure my last resort is to reformat - but I'm new to the Mac world and don't want to be rash about these things Thanks in advance for any and all help!
