Re: macBook Case cracking
Does it get stuffed in a bag or locker with other items? Is stressed placed on it? Nothing just cracks on it's own. There is no known Apple service programs for cracked cases, only discolored ones. You may want to re evaluate the life of the laptop, especially if it's constantly transported. Has it ever been dropped?
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

If it is under a year old, then you may have a case for a free replacement by Apple. If it is older, then you'll have to buy a new battery and recycle the old one. All laptop batteries have a maximum lifespan and will have to be replaced at some point in the future.
I've had the same problem when I had first installed my case. One day, when it was on the table, my friend leaned on it and there was a loud crack, which got me scared. Due to this, the cracking stopped. Turns out, there is a long tab to attach to where the fan opening is. Just flip your mac over, and push down hardly on the edge of the case, this way, it will be fully attached. Incase makes things perfectly, so if you don't install it correctly, it wont work. Hope this helps. Also, these instructions are not found anywhere.
It is very difficult to replace an Apple Superdrive and is not recommended to attempt to do so yourself unless you have pre-existing experience in doing so. Before resorting to such desperate measures, try testing your hardware with the Apple Hardware Test. You will find detailed instructions on how to use AHT here.
Mine has the same problem and I work for a company that uses mac's that also have had the same problem. It is a design fault. Take it to your nearest apple store and state this and they should change it.
Are you sure it's a macbook and not an ibook? The macbook has an embedded kebboard. It's ribbon cable and connectors are inside of the laptop as opposed to the ibook, which is installed on the top case. The Ibook did have issues with the clear or green ribbon cable squeezing up from under the right side.
Hi terry44, Try this first. Open the case. Please ground your self by touching any metal surface. Than place your hand on the hard disk drive. Do not hold the underside. Start the PC & continue to hold & listen. You mentioned the system runs for a short time, let’s see if it will crack & shut down while you’re touching the drive. We want to see if the system still shuts down & you hear that crack. If it’s the hard disk drive you will feel it as well as hear it. If you feel like the crack came from the hard disk drive than replace the drive because its going to die. Your thoughts about the board could be correct. With the case opened you should be able to pin down where the crack is coming from.
Let me know if this helped & what you found. Get back to me. Good Luck!
Youll have to open it up and look if the screen is cracked or the cover, the screen is behind the clear perspex of the outer case. If its the screen then this will help: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/LCD-SCREEN-REPLACEMENT-For-PSP-SHARP-W-BACKLIGHT-Tool_W0QQitemZ200215724197QQihZ010QQcategoryZ127746QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem
