Note: it may not be the HDD parking, i meant to change it but posted before i could.
I got my Macbook Pro last Friday and it was perfect. Very quiet, got hot but I dont use it on my lap often so that was alright.
I installed SMC Fan Control and played around a bit, then uninstalled it. Now the fan on the left is constantly on, and I can hear it from about 1.5-2ft away. As well as this, every 15 seconds to a minute, something is clicking and making sounds. Every so often when it does this and fan speeds up or down. I havent got any intensive programs on. I reset the SMC last night but it hasnt changed anything.
Anyone else have this happen/have any tips?

QUOTE Thanks
