    My macbook (2.0 13" unibody) got dropped from a height of only about 10 inches. it fell on side with the optical drive(closed) there was nothing in it, but when I opened it up and woke it it made a bunch of noise like it was trying to read a disk. It now does this every time I wake it up. When I put a disk in it winds up and appears to work normally, but if I move the laptop it makes a buzzing noise, like the dvd is spinning fast and touching somehting inside when I move it around. Did something come loose? any ideas as to wha tthe issue is, how to diagnose it, or fix it?

    thanks in advance!

    Also, I recently bought this macbook, and the screen says macbook pro at the bottom. However, I know they never made a 2.0 macbook pro. does it seem like maybe the screen just got replaced at some point? is it a direct replacement with the pro's? every thing seems to fit fine, but there is a small scratch/dent in one corner indicating a drop (which maybe cracked the screen?)

    If it works, it works. I'm surprised it works, but good luck. It may go out any day, though.

    I have no idea what you mean by a 2.0 MacBook, though.

    Doesn't every Macbook make optical drive noise when it wakes up from sleep?

    The noise I am most worried about it the buzzing I hear when a drive is spinning and I move the laptop around at all. Like the disc is hitting stuff it shouldnt while spinning.
