fan won't stop

Message #1 - Posted 2007/09/10 - Bobby Owsinski

My Macbook Pro 2.2 core 2 duo has been great until I did the latest Pro Application Support update. Now the computer runs generally hotter than it did before and the fan runs non-stop. Running 10.4.10.

Rebooted, reset the SMU, repaired permissions - no change.

Any suggestions?

I think I would first try resetting the SMC:

If that doesn't help, I'd bring it in to an Apple Store or call Apple support and let them figure out what's wrong.

Apply rot13 to this e-mail address before using it.
