    Default noisy Macbook - locating the source of the noise

    Since my Macbook Air fell onto the floor, it has become somehow noisy.
    I just can't locate the source of that noise. It's either the Harddisk or the CPU-fan. But how can I actually find out. I opened the Notebook, and tried to listen closely, but still can't tell, which of the two components it could be.

    So my question is: Is there any way I can turn off one of the two for some seconds. Turning off the Harddisk for some seconds, while the notebook is running, so that I can see if the noise will disappear? Or vice versa turning off the fan...

    Any ideas how to do one of those two things?

    Thanks in advance.

    you can't do either, however, if you removed the harddisk, then powered up you maybe able to find the source. is the noise a loud clicking... if so it could be the harddisk
