3 days before I'm set to go on tour for a month, my laptop makes THIS sound!!!!!
I don't have time to have it repaired so am just going to have to buy a f'ing nother one!!
And, btw, this was a replacement of a lemon which died within 2 weeks, which was a replacement of a lemon which died within 12 month... and I received this replacement in December, so... that makes this lemon number 3! WHY CAN'T APPLE MAKE SOLID HARDWARE??!!!
i feel for you.
any chances you get it exchanged at some store?
apple is too busy selling phones and music to built proper computer hardware
I'm going to try... but it's a pain in the ass because I'd like to be able to move a lot of data before letting go of this creature...
ouch indeed. I'd definitely try and throw a tantrum in a mac store and see if you can get it replaced. Should have to go through laptop after laptop like this.
Oof! Rats. I had bad noise with my old G4 and emagic [emi 2/6], after much an internet forum trawl and little hinting by Apple, fixed by a simple link
Probably/maybe no use to you... but hope you get yours is fixed in time for tour... Funny ol world of computers [feckin up yer sheet].
you have incredibly bad luck. . hahha.. hope you get it sorted!
or at night your cat/dog pisses in the laptop.
on up side
your computer has sorted out a drone release for you - try luvsound ;)
^^ Needs more paulstretch.

too bad you're not into industrial drone...
shit kept crashing on me but generally ran well enough, until one day my g3 made a similar sound. i checked the electric wiring in my apartment. turns out the hot and neutral were switched and ground was not even connected! 0 out of 3 correct?!?! in hindsight, i cant believe my setup ran at all!
took me an afternoon to sort out the problems and like 10 minutes to fix.
with your ratio of lemons, you may want to seriously consider checking this. if you dont have a meter, testers at home depot are cheap.
this website was useful for me:
dont forget to turn off those breakers (and test before you touch!)
Well the thing is I've moved four times in the last 2 years, so each lemon had a differnt home...
