    Im using a 13" Pro, and when I touch the trackpad it keeps making this clicky noise. Like if I drum my fingers on the pad it makes a clicky noise!!! :confused:

    You do realize that you can not only tap to click, but also push to click as well right?

    Sorry, I couldnt resist. A trackpad making a clicking noise... lol.

    Not when I click, it makes a click sound when it is simply touched for a fingerswipe, not the computer, the actual trackpad..

    its insanely irritating

    Have it check out at a Apple Store or by an authorized tech.

    Well THAT takes all the fun out of tracking down the issue (no pun intended) (well maybe a little). :p

    Check your trackpad settings in system prefs, too.

    I actually just went through this with my white unibody macbook. It sounded like metal tapping on metal clicking when i touched the trackpad, and it was very clearly not a normal noise. I tried to put up with it, but it was driving me crazy.
    I ended up taking it in a few times, and when no one could figure out what it was they actually replaced my whole machine.
    I highly recommend that you bring it into be looked at, because its the best way to get answers (and results!). I remember being really frustrated when I was having an issue, because there was no information on it in any forums, so I just wanted to let you know that it has happened to atleast one other machine!

    Maybe it's one of the accessibility settings?

    it has returned!!!! AAAHHH

    I really hope they dont need to replace the whole machine

    it isnt from the computer, its the trackpad itself, making a click everytime i even touch it, and like when I clikc it will normal click AND make this crackling click on top of it AHHH

    Ill ask apple, I have used some cleaning wipes and I am *hoping* that it is just some dried residue that perhaps I can Dust-Off? the seam is really tiny so all that pressure should do the trick..

    if it isn't some dried cleaner.. :confused:

    Just encountered this problem and had to research after only seconds. my trackpad would tap to click properly but I heard the buzzing. But after I push clicked the whole pad once or twice it stopped.

    Something inside there touching and making a lil 60-cycle-hum?

    omg... I have this problem too. I went through 2 top case replacements for my early 08 Macbook Pro which means 2 trackpad replacements and both of them did this except with the mouse button. I thought this issue wouldn't be a problem on the newer trackpads, but it's happening again! Why does every trackpad I touch hate me? It's not just the noise – this problem makes the trackpad feel cheap and not solid when pressed.

    I'm having the same problem with a MBP 6,2

    I'm having the same problem with a mbp 15" 6,2 it haves 5 months and it is doing this sound a lot of times but not only when I touch the trackpad also when I touch the keyboard or any part of the laptop so... anywhere!

    It sound is like if the mac have any positive charge and it desapears when i touch it... it´s something electrical.

    Anyone knows the solution? I'm going to have a look on the apple forum.
