Am I always supposed to hear the fan of my computer?

Hi AriEl,
No, the MBP's fan should not be a loud sound.
The fans on my regular MacBooks do make an audible sound, but it's a low 'white noise' king of thing that I don't really notice unless there is no other noise in the room, or if I make myself aware of it.
You can try blowing compressed air into the vents at the back of the laptops bottom piece. That sometimes helps by getting rid of excess dust in the fan blades & vents.
If it doesn't help, you might need to take the MacBook to an Apple Store or other Apple certified repair shop.
Hope this helps you!

MacBook Pro mid 2011 AUX input dose not work with my headphones.. please help me.. :(

Its very rare a mac has sound problems. Some earphones consume batteries, does yours have batteries in it? and is it powered on while connecting? With the earphones connected, check system volume and increase the sound while playing music. If there is sound coming from the mac itself then there maybe an issue with the AUX connection. Possible dust blocking the port. Clean it and try again. If there is no sound coming from the mac itself while the earphones are connected, then the AUX port is connected to the earphones and is in good working condition. Increase the volume on both devices, the mac and the earphones, if it has this feature. If there is still no sound, there may be a problem with the earphones itself. Possibly bad wires already, connect the earphones to other devices and listen for sound. If still no sound, replace earphones.

No sound on my macbook

Check if there is any sound coming out of the headphone (using headphone and playing itunes).
If there is none. Goto System Preference > Hardware > Sound > Output ; check if the output is assign to internal speaker and it is not muted.
Do a visual check at the headphone connector, look into it, see if you see a red light emit from the headphone jack (indicate that the fault is in the headphone connector, it's trying to output optical spdif).

Im using a macbook, im not able to hear any thing in a voice conference in yahoo messenger.. pls help

check your preferences in the apps. Do you have headset plugged in??
there are sound options in yahoo messenger preferences, check those first, as well as your system preferences sound settings.
sometimes, its just plugged into the wrong input, and/or not set to hear/talk with a headset.

When I play a movie I can hear the sound but when I am trying to test the windows sounds..i cant hear anything..I have Mac air..Please help

Usually an issue with the jack. The laptop thinks an optical link is plugged in and turns off the analog audio. Clean out the jack. If you want to do it yourself, the good news is, it'snot too hard to open it. Here is an Macbook Air Repair Guide that shows how to open an iPod. Just open it and let it try, clean off any corrosion you can find. If you want somebody else to do it for you go to iPad Repair NYC.

The loading 'logo' wont disappear. pls help.

Hold the power button down. Keep it down until the unit powers off. Then press power to start the machine up, and as soon as you hear the starting chime (boooong) press Command+Option+P+R and keep them held down until you hear the startup sound 3 times. Then you can let go and it should start normally.

Macbook Pro Right speaker isn't working

I hate to break it to you, but it sounds like a hardware issue. Have you tried going into System Preferences yet? If not, go to System Prefs>Sound>Output tab and then check the speaker balance. If the slider is in the middle, then it definitely sounds like a hardware issue.
I'm going to guess you've had your MBP for a while now, which would mean that something inside like a speaker wire could have gotten knocked around enough to just fall off, or loosen a connecter just enough to make the speaker not work. That is, of course, if it is not System Prefs. Let me know how it goes.
