hi all, so far i have been very happy with my macbook (2.0ghz 1Gb 80Gb) but recently when i open the lid after 2 seconds a scratching sound comes from the left speaker and lasts for a short period. The speaker works fine but i was just wondering if anyone else has experienced this and if it is a problem that can be fixed. i dont want to send it back as i have just started my A-levels and dont want to be without it as i take it to 6th form and it is not an issue that bothers me or stops my macbook from working properly.

thanx,
Mike

Bookshop!
yeah i have the same problem. I thought i was the only one!

I haven't worried about it, because it doesn't seem to affect the computers operation, and it could just be passed off as noise from outside.

If you hadn't said left speaker I'd have suggested that it was your superdrive. It does this sort of 'bzzaaBZAAAA' noise whenever I bring mine back from sleep. Similar to the noise it makes when feeding a disc.

Hi, I've noticed the same thing on someone else's macbook. To me it sounds like crumpling a piece of paper - for some time I didn't even realize it was the laptop that made the sound. Not the worst thing in the world, but very weird ! :confused:

Please do tell if you come up with a fix.

edit: btw - in my case this only happens intermittently

thats exactly what it sounds like! i couldn't think of something to compare it to when i first posted. Mine is also intermittent but i notice that it starts to happen more throughout the day, so in the morning it wont do it but when i get home from 6th form it will do it every time.
