If I go to the apple store to get my macbook repaired, will they have to erase my hard drive?

depends on what your problom is? if its programing or the OS,,,quite possibly, if its just a simple hardware issue, then it should be ok...all depeneds on what needs to be done. but being one who works with this for a living. i owuld say a rule of thumb is to always backup your data!

it's shutting down all the time and as it shuts down the disk drive begins to eject repeatedly (even though there's nothing in it) and won't stop. I then have to wait for about 30 mins before I can turn it back on.

Wow man, I was looking at this kid's Macbook today and it was awesome! It was SO small and thin. Totally awesome. I want one now. )

ew, doesn't sound like a happy computer....I dont know mac's all that well (working at geek squad we mostly have PC's in) but i am not sure what that could be exactly, could be overheating, bad memory, as for the drive?....uh. we had a pc that came in with a problom like that, ends up there was a piece of foam from a new spindel of CDR's in there. lol.
