Noisy Powerbook Speakers

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
I have a really loud noise coming out from the speaker near the ESC key. it sounds like a dying dolphin and it wont stop! The noise only stops when i turn my computer off or it is in sleep. but other than that its always there. does nyone know what this could be? it sounds really worrying.

    nope it didnt do anything, none of the sound options changed anything. i have just found out that if i leave the power adapter off the noise goes after a short period of time, but then whenever a sound is bout to play it will start up again.

    it seems to be a probelm with the actual speaker. i have just put in some headphones and they work fine, so mabe i should get some external speakers. also when i have just the laptop speakers working and i mute the speakers, after waiting for the noise to go away it does not come back on. so any ideas how to get it fixed?
