Currently Being ModeratedSep 5, 2009 5:03 AM (in response to Paritosho)This OS is using more system resources that the other OS which makes it run about 7 - 10 degrees warmer. The fans are running more than before; however, me machine is still quieter than a Windows machine!17 MacBook Pro w/ 4GB DRAM, Mac OS X (10.6)

How much free disk space?
Control or right click the MacintoshHD icon on your Desktop. Click "Get Info". Under the General tab you will see Capacity and Available. Make sure there is at least 10% available disk space, 15% is better.
For fan issues, try resetting the SMC.

Currently Being ModeratedOct 11, 2009 5:51 AM (in response to Paritosho)I installed snow about a week ago. Yesterday some funny squeaking sounds started up. I don't know if this is related. Its coming from the left hand side keyboard and speaker. Started whilst just using safari. No video or anything machine wasn't working hard and the fans were inactive.
The sound itself sounds like somebody squeezing an inflated party balloon or such with an odd tone behind it which is not dissimilar to the sound of a dial up modem. I have a recording but am unsure if i can post it on heremacbook pro 17 2.5ghz 8600MGT snowleopard, Mac OS X (10.6.1)
