I bought a new black macbook about 7 months ago: Here are the specs: Model Name: MacBook Model Identifier: MacBook2,1 Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo Processor Speed: 2.16 GHz Number Of Processors: 1 Total Number Of Cores: 2 L2 Cache (per processor): 4 MB Memory: 2 GB Bus Speed: 667 MHz Basically, the fan noise is getting incredibly loud and very whiny, even with just microsoft word on... It is also getting very hot to the touch... And apparently, the bottom part of my macbook (the case) has a defect- its slightly popped out... I never dropped my macbook and it has always been in a case so apparently I must have bought it like that... Also, the computer won't wake up from sleep mode sometimes, and sometimes when I push the power button to turn it on, all I see is a blank white/grey screen and nothing happens... It has only been a couple of months and I've already been to the apple store about three times... I am a student so I don't have the time to send it in for the approx. 7 to 10 day wait period... and I am concerned that if I do not send my computer in soon, the computer will crash and all my school work will go with it. I do not have an alternate computer and I will have no time to turn it in for repair until june... I do not know what to do... When I went to the apple store, they tested it and said that there was nothing wrong with the sound (however this only happens when it's taken in), I know for certain that there is something wrong with the fan noise... My suitemates and friends who have the same computer as I do, do not have this problem... What should I do? Is there any way I would be able to get this computer replaced? I really do not have the time to send it in for repairs... What should I do?? Any help would be appreciated... Thank You!
