MacBook Pro :: Getting It Pretty Hot On Bottom

May 4, 2012

I have a 15" Mac Book Pro that I bought in May of 2011. Especially, when I watch movies or use Skype it gets hot. It's not hot like it can burn me or anything. And I realize they "work" harder when using Skype or watching vids but I was wondering if the computer getting warmer is normal ?

MacBook Pro :: Its Get Hot In Normal Use (bottom+top)?

May 31, 2012

From the time I bought my new Macbook in Mid-February, it gets hot over small stuff.... and starts getting way hot when i start playing any game like CivilisationV, Sims3 etc.Sometimes its CPU temperature reaches ~93 degrees Celsius and Fan Speen reaches 6500 rpm according to istat pro of Dashboard, and it gets difficult to even rest my palm on the sides of touchpad and keypad.. I contacted customer care here, and they said to make a backup cuz they will put Lion again.. Is it Operating System's fault? Dirt's Fault? Manufacturer defect? or is it Normal?My Charger adapter also gets wayy too much hot after around 20 minutes that I cudnt even touch it!

MacBook :: Heat Distribution - Get Hot On The Bottom Like Other Laptops?

May 31, 2010

I've never owned a MacBook or mbp, so I'm not sure about the macbooks in this regard. I know the mbp has the case that helps distribute heat. Does the new macbooks get hot on the bottom like other laptops? Looking to buy one for my wife and she doesn't like how hot some laptops get when on her lap.

MacBook Pro :: Turned It Off But Still Very Hot

Jun 13, 2006

And not hot in the good way...

I turned my Macbook off for about three hours to watch a movie. I hadn't had it on any longer than an hour prior to turning it off.

But after picking it up to turn it back on just now, I practically burned my hand on it. It's been off for THREE hours...

I'm assuming this is a bad sign. However, I know I didn't overwork it prior to turning it off. No hissing or mooing.

I bought a MacBook Pro in November, and it seems to get hot very quickly. It is usually just sitting on a desk. It sounds like the fan is working, but I don't know a solution. I have a Speck case on it, but I don't think that would be an issue? Is this worth taking to the genious bar? ...I have AppleCare

MacBook Pro :: Suddenly Running Very Hot

Nov 19, 2010

explain why my MBP is running very hot under OS X. It started about 2 days ago, to the point where in just a few minutes the laptop is running very hot and fans going probably at 100% (but I didn't test this). I'm using windows under bootcamp now and that is fine, so I don't think it's the hardware. I have checked the ram use and thing seems normal - the highest being safari around 250mb with many tabs open. Would it be something using the CPU to make it heat up? Even with nothing open it heats up in a few minutes. This was before the most recent update, and after the recent update. It's a 13" 2010 MBP.

MacBook Pro :: MAGSAFE Started Getting Hot

Jan 16, 2008

Like many of you, my magsafe finally started getting hot enough to make popcorn. Where I would have gone out and bought another, a simple dead short was too easy of a repair.... and I can use that $80 for other Apple goodies. I might as well get something out of my electronics degree. I decided to take pics to share. Since I seem to take pics of things people like these days, I've watermarked them to avoid any *more* theft of images. Apologies in advance for the watermarks. I would have written this as a DIY, but I determined if you couldn't get the jist from the pics, you shouldn't be attempting it. (Self solving problem) Basically what happens is that the outer shielding breaks FIRST from the flexxing of the cable. Once the outer shielding breaks the wire loses all it's structural integrity and it's a very short time before the inner wire starts poking through and creating small dead shorts between the + and - voltage of the two. This is why some days it is blisteringly hot and some days it is not. There are only small strands of the inner wire poking through and each time they make contact they burn off, creating a very hot wire, but one that seems to fix itself or only randomly get hot. If you continue to use the adapter in this situation you WILL end up with a fire that can threaten your book, your home, and your life.

At this point in the life of the wire it is in critical. The inner wire is breaching the jacket and the outer wire has nearly broken in half. The effects are a very poor connection on the negative shielding which creates heat by lack of ability to properly transfer energy. The heat warms up the already damaged inner jacket and the next thing you know.... you are here complaining about your Magsafe almost burning your leg off. With a little skill, you can fix this issue and save $80. The process took me 45 minutes and cost me NOTHING. My adapter is like new and will last me another year before I have to do it again. Inevitably by design, all Magsafe's will fail. I don't know about you, but I have better things to do with my $80, so once a year I don't mind making this repair. If you buy a new Magsafe it WILL fail again. The revision of a SLIGHTLY larger rubber grommet is a horrible fix with minimal results.

OS X :: Macbook Pro Randomly Getting Hot - How To Fix It

Jun 4, 2009

I've had my Macbook Pro since December 2007 and only today I've noticed it suddenly getting hot when doing nothing but browsing forums on Safari, smcFanControl said it was up to a shocking 90 degrees Celcius. At first I just ignored it but it happened again just now but this time only went up to 75 degrees Celcius.

MacBook Pro :: 9600m GT Running Very Hot

Dec 28, 2009

I have noticed that using 9600m GT causes my mac to run about 20-30 degrees warmer compared to using the 9400m. For instance, when using the 9400m i'd normally get about 45-60 degrees when running firefox and itunes, but when i switch to the 9600m GT and performing the same tasks i get up to about 85 if not 90! I just thought this was a tad perculiar. Anyone with similar experiences / solutions to cooling this thing down (besides using smc which i already have installed).

MacBook Pro :: 2010 13" Getting Too Hot?

Apr 29, 2010

I'm playing a game on my new base model 13" (2.4 GHz C2D, 320M) and it runs fine enough (smooth framerate, etc) only iStat Pro tells me that my CPU is hanging around 84 deg C. The temperature stays the same regardless of the settings I try.

Maybe I dont know much about CPU/GPU's, but this seems very hot to me! I mean, 100 C is boiling temperature! Am I at risk of melting/damaging anything in there? If not, how is it possible that the components can operate so hot?

MacBook Pro :: Handbrake - Really Hot Computer

Jul 23, 2010

Should I be concerned about my temps. With light use (browsing, Pages, iTunes, etc), my computer hovers around 35 to 45 deg but with very very intensive work (Handbrake for example) which runs the CPU at near 100%, I hit temps upwards to 95* Normally hovers around 88 to 95* I did see it hit 99*, but the fans brought it down. All the above temps are "Pre-SMCFanControl" But with SMC... With the "Higher RPM" setting, I can hold 85* while running Handbrake.

MacBook Pro :: Getting Hot And Fan Keeps On Running?

Apr 17, 2012

My 2011 MBP began getting hot about a week ago, the fan keeps running.  For obvious reasons the battery only lasts about 2 hours then.  I have AppleCare, however don't live close to an Apple Store.  Anything I can do? or am I bound to shipping it off?  After looking around in the forum, I thought I would add that I am only looking at webpages and doing simple word documents.
