MacBook :: Fan Running Constantly With Loud Noise

Jun 22, 2010

I've just purchased a new Macbook. I'm very happy with it aside from the fan noise, which seems a little loud to me. Now, before I bring it into the Apple Store to have it looked at I just want to check and see if maybe I'm just being overly picky. I downloaded iStat, based on some Google searching I did on the subject and my fans are running around 2000 rpm, which I understand is normal. But in my apartment, which is admittedly quiet, I can hear my fan running constantly. It isn't extremely loud, but it isn't totally quiet either. I'm just wondering what level of noise I should reasonably expect out of my Macbook.

MacBook :: Overheating And Loud Fan On 13"?

May 17, 2012

I've had my Macbook Since early 2008. But only in the last 8 Months my fan has become increasingly Noisy and Hot. I upgraded to Snow Leopard last year (I'm on Mac OS X 10.6.8 ) and it seems it became alot noisier after this. I originally only had 2gb Ram, but upgraded this week to 4gb ram thinking that would help. I've also gone and purchased an external hard drive and moved all my movies, photos, music etc onto this in an attempt to not only back up my files but hopefully alleviate some of my space on the mac. I've tried the Resetting SMC and also followed another apple step by step guide (??) and in my activitiy monitor nothing is even over 10% and i've been regularly checking for the last hour. I'm aware the fan is always running, but the noise is ridiculous. I've done so much research on this and i'm at a complete loss, I know there is only one fan in this version of macbook and it's definitely running as I hear it all the time.

MacBook Pro :: WD HDD Constantly Spinning?

Jun 23, 2009

i recently got a 13" mbp, upgraded to a WD scorpio blue 500gb and 4gb crucial RAM. the annoying thing is that the WD HDD seems to always be spinning (randomly at different rates, never silent).

i feel that this is not only draining the battery, but it is also slightly obnoxious. is there any way to get the thing to stop spinning, or is that just what it does. I feel as though my past macbooks havent had this problem.

MacBook Air :: It Constantly Freezing Up

Apr 8, 2012

The MacBook Air that I purchased a month ago, freezes up on me constantly. I've researched various forums, and some are stating that this could be due to the system overheating. I really do not believe this is the case with my MacBook Air, as I rarely use it. I only use it for traveling (I write for a living) and every time I use it, it freezes. It is not hot when it freezes.

I could be working on a document or just browsing the Internet and all of a sudden, the cursor and track pad stop working. Sometimes it's ok and when done, I close the lid, or put it in sleep mode. However, when I return to open the system, my track pad, cursor, everything freezes again! I literally have to shut it down with the power key (not even the apple/quit keys work) and reboot the system. Another flaw is that the darn thing will reboot, but I cannot log it (mouse / cursor still don't work). Therefore, it takes bout 4 reboots to engage it again.

I'm at my wits end. I've had this thing to the Apple Store twice and they always say "I've never heard of this happening" and after extensive troubleshooting, I walk away without any resolution. To say that they have never heard of this issue is astounding to me, because the more I research this issue on the Internet, I'm finding more and more complaints.I will also say that this is my SECOND MacAir in one month. I had the same issue with the first one I purchased (after only one week), and returned it to BestBuy for a brand new replacement. I thought it was a fluke. Guess again ... same issue with this one.After all these years, I decided to take the plunge and get an Apple, but I must admit, I feel completely burned. $1200.00 for a laptop and I can barely use it. I'm sick over the entire thing. I will never buy another Apple again.

MacBook Pro :: UMBP W/ 8GB RAM Paging Out Constantly?

Jul 30, 2009

I have a 17" 2.93 UMBP w/ 8GB RAM. I have two X25-Es as boot drives and use an external 1TB Caviar Black as my home folder. I rum virtual machine from the external.

My question is this: is it abnormal for a machine with 8GB of OWC RAM to page out (right now at 2:02 after boot page outs are at 421.5 MB). Usage is moderate (Safari, iTunes and a Parallels VM with 512 MB virtual RAM assigned). I'm thinking my RAM is either crap or defective any constructive.

MacBook Pro :: Unibody 2.53 Constantly Freezes

Nov 15, 2009

I intended to bring my computer in for service, but since the issues weren't a big deal, I postponed it as long as possible (I'm a professional DJ preforming with Traktor Scratch Pro and Ableton) I also own a previous generation Macbook Pro used for school stuff. This one is in the shop because a friend of mine sat on it and broke the keyboard.Now, whilst preforming last week, my Unibody froze during playing (never happend before). Had to push the power button for 5 sec., you know the drill. I thought this happened because I used my computer for school stuff the other week (installed adobe creative suite, iwork and stuff like that).

Software :: Macbook Pro Freezes Constantly

Jan 22, 2009

I have had my Macbook Pro for about a year and a half, and up until now I haven't had much trouble. Starting yesterday, my mac has been freezing constantly, anywhere between every 2-40 minutes. When it freezes, blue vertical lines will appear on the screen and the whole screen will freeze. Restarting it turns it back on, but sometimes that doesn't even work until after a few tries. This happens in multiple applications, but I notice it happens the most in Safari. I tried using AppleJack, Virus Scan, and deleting things off my hard-drive to solve the problem, but none of it has worked. I'm not sure what to do at this point, it's a major inconvenience having to spend 20 minutes turning the computer on and off to be able to use it for a short while. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!

MacBook Pro :: Why Is AirPort Constantly Scanning

May 20, 2012

I have a MacBook Pro with Mac OS X 10.5.8. I have recently started having trouble staying connected to the internet via my wireless connection. I'm constantly getting disconnected from the internet - the AirPort status in the menu bar can have 4-5 bars, but I can still be dropped. When I click on the AirPort status in the menu bar, you can see the AirPort status going back and forth from "AirPort: On" to "AirPort: Scanning" continuously. It's very difficult to sign up for anything online when my connection keeps dropping. It's also very difficult to watch anything that's being streamed without it buffering all the time. I'm definitely technologically challenged, but it seems like it should be working and it seems like it should be a common sense kind of thing, but I'm not able to work it out on my own - my apple care has expired and I can get NO answers from Apple unless I want to pay for them.

MacBook Pro :: Display Constantly Cuts Out?

May 27, 2012

the display's started cutting off unexpectedly. It started a few months ago with random restarts, which I thought were caused by a bad hard drive, but it turns out permissions errors, stacked up over the years, really can bork your computer. I replaced the hard drive (didn't mind opening her up, since she's well out of warranty), but the problem kept occuring - only with the screen going dark randomly. I thought the new hard drive was dying, too. But here's how it's been going down lately. About twice a day, the screen will go black. Not just the backlight; it's as though the display has been turned off. I can't wake it from the display sleep, but it's not for lack of hitting the space bar repeatedly. Keyboard backlight stays on for a second, and then goes dark, at which point, I'll force a shutdown and try to restart. All of which is messing with my data; I've been doing a permissions repair pretty much daily now, and there's loads of 'em to repair. I noticed today, when it happened earlier, that my hard drive is still spinning, and USB peripherals retain their power. So what is causing my display to cut out like this, and how do I keep it from happening again (at least this frequently) until I can afford a new MacBook?

OS X Mavericks :: MacBook Pro Fan Constantly Running?

Jun 26, 2014

For a couple of days the fan of my (15" late 2011) MacBook Pro has been constantly running and the Mac has become sluggish. The CPU temperature is 156 °F. It seems that the problem would be caused by "coreservicesd" process taking a huge percentage (57%) of the Mac RAM.

I am running OS X 10.9.3 with 8 Go. RAM and 500 Go. HD

MacBook Pro :: 13 Freezing Constantly - Freezes On Reboot?

Jul 24, 2009

Recently my 13 inch MBP has been freezing a lot. It seems similar to the 1.7 firmware problem many are reporting, but from what I can tell from their posts the freezing only lasts 15-30 seconds then they can work again. On my computer the freezing does not stop and I am forced to hold the power button to shutdown every time. When I attempt to reboot the computer after that I have to reset the PRAM every time.

I am using a 3rd party hard drive that worked fine up until a little less than a week ago, and also worked fine in my old plastic white macbook. When I put the stock hard drive back in it seems to work fine, but I admittedly haven't used it as extensively and not all of my apps are installed, but most of my freezing occurs in safari as well sometimes itunes.If anyone knows how to downgrade firmware back to 1.6 I would try that as well, but I am not sure if that is possible.

MacBook Pro :: Flash Video Stutters Constantly?

Aug 12, 2009

I have a Late 2008 Unibody MacBook Pro. I love it, it's great. I upgraded to a 500gb HD and 4GB of RAM.Since I purchased it, Flash videos (Vimeo, YouTube, etc..) are jerkey in both Safari (3.0 and 4.0) and in Firefox (3.0 and 3.5). I've tried updating my Flash player, and just nothing seems to work. The audio plays fine, but the video stutters almost every few seconds. My video settings are on "Best Performance".

OS X :: MacBook Airport Constantly Disconnecting And Reconnecting?

Mar 14, 2010

This issue started to appear few days ago, and it is really frustrating.

Every couple of minutes, my Airport disconnects from the networks and reconnects in a matter of seconds, causing all of my on-line activities to cancel, and IM programs to disconnect.

And the main concern is that I've had my Macbook for 2 and a half years already, and this never happened before. And now happens all the time.

MacBook Pro :: Proc Temp Constantly High - How To Know About It

Apr 7, 2010

I had my computer idling and noticed that the fans sped up to full blast, so naturally I tried to figure out what was causing it to heat up. I quit pretty much every app I had running, no diff. I unplugged my iPhone, no diff. Even shutdown the computer, fans went right back up as soon as I loaded up OS X. So I looked at SMC Fancontrol (which I never really even use) and the temp was at 88 C!!

I have nothing open, completely turned off the computer and rebooted it to make sure that nothing running would be causing it, and it's STILL running hot as hell! Is there anything I can do to see what's causing it to run so damn hot? I really don't wanna put a crap-load of wear on my fans and CPU here.

I'm using a 2.2 ghz SantaRosa MBP running the latest version of Snow Leopard.

MacBook Pro :: Will Fan Wear Out If Constantly Spinning At 3500 RPM

MacBook Pro :: Fan Almost Running Constantly Even When Half Of CPU Idle

Mar 23, 2012

The fan is almost constantly running, it shouldn't be. The Activity monitor at the moment is showing that 45% of CPU is idle. About a third of my drive is free. I have 500 Gb of SSD, so there are no moving disk heads. The screen is turned up to a level I want to work with. I am running the regular stuff -- Word, Firefox, Mail and other Apple apps, all usual stuff. The MBP sits on a clear glass desk so heat can disburse through the glass, but the fan is still running. The MBP is about two years old. Lion.
