    MacBook Pro Crackling
    Hi,

    Recently when ever I apply light pressure to the flat base of my Mid 2010 MBP I hear a sparking or crackling noise from inside.

    Does anybody have any ideas on what this could be and how to solve it.

    Thanks again.

    From inside as in when you listen to music, or it's actually making noise while doing nothing? If it's the later, it could be something stuck in the fan(?).

    HDD Clicking
    If your hdd is clicking, then you need to back up your hdd. That way if it fails then you are good with a backup
