    Macbook pro Fan or Hard Drive noise
    Hi

    Please can anyone identify this noise from my macbook pro
    its comes from the left side, i think its the fan or hard drive.
    here is a link to the mp3 player -

    macbook pro (0 tracks) by zombiepunk99 - MixPod.com

    If i tilt the laptop to the left at 90 degrees it goes quiet.
    All the temps are normal
    And both left and right fans spin the same around 1990/2000 rpm

    Thanks if you can help.

    Really difficult fro anyone to tell what this might be ... but I would take a stab at it and say it does sound like your fan ...

    Kind of hard to tell by the sound of it...could be the hard drive or the fan. But if the sound is coming from above the keyboard near the display hinge area...it's probably the fan. That's where fans are typically located.
