Whine Noise

Recommended Posts

I have had my macbook pro for 3 weeks now and I have noticed this whine sound since I got it. I have been looking on the apple forums and noticed that this is a noise that is not on all macbook pros. So I was wondering does anyone else have this whining sound from the right side of the keyboard. I got a new macbook yesterday to replace the whining one and this one has the same whine. So I have no idea what to do. Does anyone have any ideas on what to do with this whine besides turning on photobooth, mirror widget, or the app that busies up your 2nd core to remove the sound?

 

Thanks,

Eck

I am starting to work on a theory, do you have the 7200rpm drive?

From what I can tell it is an idle whine from the second core from what I hear.

I think that a "whining" sound is often caused by an overworked graphics card. It happens when using 3D rendering programs. I was a bit surprised the first time I booted Blender and it made a whining/grinding/buzzing sound, which I think is what you are talking about, but it just happens when you use 3D programs.
