I got the MacBook in November. I noticed after I took it home that when I moved it while I was using it, I got a clicking sound. I *was* worried, until I googled it and saw this thread
and others like it. Suddenly, after replacing the hard disk, it doesn't have that click anymore, so I just want some sort of reassurance that replacing the hard disk doesn't affect the SMS.
It shouldn't. Just like it shouldn't have any effect on your screen.
Well, the SMS isn't designed to interact with the screen, it's designed to interact with your hard disk in the event of a catastrophic fall. So, no, it's not just like the relationship with the screen. I was curious if the SMS actually resided in the hard disk that shipped with the MacBook, as unlikely as that seemed. It was the only obvious explanation for the fact that swapping the hard disk out seemed to remove that clicking sound.
