It wouldn't be the CPU - It would either be the fans or the hard drive (or the optical drive if you have a disk in).Ok, so there's this weird sound (very difficult to hear) which comes from the top right side of my MBP. Sounds like a cricket and I don't remember hearing that noise until a couple of days ago.
Is it the CPU ?
I have an SSD so no it's not my HDD.It wouldn't be the CPU - It would either be the fans or the hard drive (or the optical drive if you have a disk in).
The top right is where the optical disk drive in located - Do you have a disk in the drive?I have an SSD so no it's not my HDD.
It's not the fans either since they are dead silent (1900 RPM).
Sound comes from the top right corner of my MBP (13 inch 2011 base model) keyboard/ac. It's almost impossible to hear it but it's there. I remember hearing the same sound on very old computers.
Mine does that. It's slightly annoying, but tolerable.Could be this. Mine was. All quiet now
I had one replaced for this, the replacement eventually started doing the same. I hear the 'crickets' when I press on the aluminum between the keys... Brought into Genius Bar and he said it would need top cover replacement with an etr of 'weeks', so I am living with it for now.Any suggestions?
I repeat: it's like a cricket/processing sound coming from the MagSafe even when it's not connected.
Unfortunately I cannot record it since the microphone cannot pick it up :/
