    Hello,

    I tried to move my Mac Pro over a couple of inches and touched the underside that felt soft. I heard some crackle and saw some orange light. (sparks)?

    Is this normal?

    Also my 27" Apple Cinema Display makes a grind noise when I tilt it?
    Metal on Metal. Is this normal?

    Thanks

    I have no idea what would make your Mac Pro feel soft and emit orange sparks, other than drugs maybe, but I'm quite certain it's not normal.

    Soft underside?

    I've never seen sparks come out of any of my computers (cars are a different story).

    Ok, I may have ben over reacting :)

    There is a small gray rectangle on the underside that when pushed sounds like a crackle.

    I tried it again and did not see any lights, so I am not sure what happened.
    It does make noise when pushed.

    The grey rectangle (thin plastic) usually has various things like serial numbers on it, and underneath/behind it should be located the WiFi aerials. On the older ones the Bluetooth was located elsewhere, though it may also be under there on the newer ones as well.

    Thanks, my first Mac Pro.
    I think I panicked.

    Still do not think the ACD 27" should grind when tilted.
