Chirping Sound when running MS Office in MacBook Pro

Asked By 20 points N/A Posted on -

I have a MacBook Pro and just recently, I installed OS X Lion on my device and it worked fine. Few days ago, while I am trying to run Microsoft office, I can hear a chirping sound that is produced by my device and eventually it will just crash. I forced close the program and then after a reboot, it works okay again. After that event, I removed Microsoft Office and re-installed it thinking that I will not be encountering the same issue again but I was wrong. Now I want to know if the issue is with Microsoft Office or if it’s not incompatible with my device? Or the problem is with Apple? I want to use the Genius Bar but I’m not sure if this can help. Finals is almost coming and it would be a great relief if someone can help me because I will be using Microsoft Word to finish my term papers. Thank you!

Chirping Sound when running MS Office in MacBook Pro


Hey Sopatrick..!!

Which version of MS Office are you using? Because only Office 2011 is known to run smoothly with OS X Lion. The previous versions tend to be a little glitchy or don't work because they were made for Power PC(the old type of processor that Macs used)and the current macs that run Lion use intel processors.

And regarding the chirping sound issue, neither microsoft nor apple have reported any bug which affects the computer hardware. And based on my research, Mac books have a long history for producing these chirping sounds. Try installing microsoft office 2011. And also trying using your system for long hours by running different applications.The sound may be caused due to some hardware malfunction may be due to incompatibility.And if the problem still persists then you need to get your MacBook serviced. 

Hope this helps.
