    restoring multiple times won't affect the performance of your machine. i've done it several times on all my computers, and they've performed just the same.

    if you're hearing any noises, it's likely either the fan or the hard drive. or, it could also be the super drive, though it's hard to tell without actually having heard it.

    Are you doing anything in particular when this noise occurs?

    I sometimes get weird sounds too

    It could be any electrical interference, power source...any guess, no clue.

    do you have your mail setup? When you send mail that's the sound letting you know it's sent.
