Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."

5 Comments to MacBook Pro High-Pitched Whining Sound

  1. I got a MacBook Pro from work and it also had that high pitch noise. I used the migration assistant and imported settings and applications from a powermac G5. When I used Firefox on the Macbook, it would make the high pitch sound. I called Apple and they told me to delete the account and start a new one. This solved the noise problem which also locked up the computer.

    My suggestion is to back up your files and start anew.

    and yes, it completely goes away when photobooth is launched, but is not affected in my case by adjusting the brightness.

    off topic: the advert to the right, offering a $200k reward for people turning in illegal software users, reminds me of something that was happening in Germany during the 30’s. disgusting.
