    I have a 15" macbook pro, and when I rest my left hand to type, I can hear a clicking/tapping sound from inside that area. I turned my laptop over and gave it a slight tap on the back, and I can hear that clicking/tapping sound. I'm thinking there may be a loose part inside.

    Should I take it in to get it looked at? And do most Apple stores look at it for free/fix it for free?

    I'd say your hard drive is failing.


    Backup your data immediately and bring it in to the apple store.

    My 15 MBP's had a similar sound since purchased (~ 6 months ago). I don't think it's a failing HD. I'd be curious to hear what Apple says if/when you take in it.

    Yeah, I'm going to give them a call tomorrow. Hopefully it's not a failing hard drive cause I don't have an external to back it up on lol

    Good to hear it's not the hard drive. Hmm, it looks like the only way to fix it is opening it up and putting rubber in lol

    Hmm, after reading that thread more carefully, it seems like those sounds are coming from the right hand side. Mine is coming from the left...

    I don't have school or work tomorrow, so I might as well drop by the Apple Store and have them take a look at it. Does anyone know if they charge for doing that?
