My black macbook has started squeaking whenever i open or close it. Its very annoying in library or any other place where i have to be quiet. Does anyone else have this issue or figured out how to stop it?

Maybe graphite lubricant. I really have no idea, but i would like it to stop.
Thanks for any and all input

I'd say some WD-40 or 80W-90 gear oil would fix er right up! Just kidding, that is the last thing you'll want to put on there. I don't see where graphite lube would hurt besides turning your computer black if you rub the dust.

No iMac.

My scree started to squeek about 2 or3 months after i got it (aug/06) but after awhile it seems to have gone away on its own.... maybe w/e was rubbing just wears off... the screen still stays in place and is firm to open and close...
