MacBook :: Computer Getting Extremely Hot

Apr 4, 2009

I have a 2007 white C2D 2.16 MacBook. Over the last couple of days it has been getting extremely hot, too hot to put on my lap or even touch sometimes. I have iStat pro but have never paid any attention to the temps before so I can't tell how much it has actually risen. Also my power adapter doesn't light up properly. It will go the right colour for a bit and then just go a really faint green that I can just make out if the room light is off. If I unplug it and then plug it back in it comes back on, but only for a few minutes or so. The computer still charges tho. I am out of Apple Care so I don't really know what to do.

OS X :: MacBook Started Get Extremely Hot - Unresponsive

Sep 20, 2009

I was using my Macbook as usual last night, when some of the programs froze and the laptop started to get extremely hot. I tried to quit out of them but they were unresponsive, and unsure of what to do about it closed the lid and let it sleep and cool off. This morning I have tried to close the programs again with no success, so I hit the power button to restart the laptop. Now it doesn't boot, a folder appears on a gray background with a question mark in it. It wont boot to windows either, just sits on a gray screen. Can anyone help? What do I do? I'm not brilliant with computers, but I don't think I had done anything to crash the laptop. I had upgraded to Snow Leopard earlier on though, and not had any issues until then.

MacBook :: Computer Gets Extremely Hot When Using Firefox

Oct 17, 2010

Here's what iStat has to say about my Mid-2007 White MacBook! All I have open is TextEdit, iCal, Preview, Safari, and Firefox. I've been noticing that my computer gets especially hot when I'm using Firefox. Should I worry about it disintegrating from the insides or are these levels of temperature perfectly normal? It's really difficult for me to keep it on my lap if I'm using it for longer than 15 minutes because the bottom of the case gets insanely hot. It's also quite discolored around the edges (sort of a greenish blue) and around where the exhaust is and it's cracked around the edges and where the hinges are around the screen.

MacBook Pro :: Swapped HDD Is Extremely Slow?

Jul 25, 2009

I just dropped in a WD Scorpio 7200 320GB drive in my mid-2009 mbp. I successfully cloned my previous drive. It took forever to boot the first time and every subsequent time. It takes hours to install the os fresh after wiping it. Not at all how I expected the swap to go. What do you all think? Swap it out for another because this one is a bad egg?

I have done a guid partition and it is formatted in mac os x extended and journaled.

When i boot from my old drive, now in a usb enclosure, everything is fine. However when I access the new internal drive it hangs and just doesn't play well with it at all.

Aug 18, 2009

My macbooks charger, its a white macbooks charger, which is the same watts as my unibodies, is getting extremely hot when I use it on my unibody. It never was this hot and IDK why it is like this.

I'm running vista on my unibody with 2gb ram and I know that vista support is crappy for macs even with boot camp, so it gets hot alot but I don't know why its doing this. My mom is using my unibodies charger for her white macbook.

MacBook Pro :: OS X 10.9.4 Is Getting Extremely Hot To Touch Especially The Charger

Aug 22, 2014

My MacBook Pro OS X 10.9.4 is getting extremely hot to touch, especially the charger. It becomes hot within about half an hour of turning it on.  Within two hours it is too hot and I  turn it off.   Indoors with AC. I can't remember when I last bought a new battery but my system report says the health condition is ok.

MacBook Pro :: Attaching File - Icons Extremely Big?

Oct 11, 2010

Not sure if I am imagining this or I messed up something but when I go to a site to attach a file, whether it be tiny pic or gmail, when I do the icon view, the icons are extremely big. Not sure if there was a choice of shrinking them so I am wondering if anyone could check their comp for me. The option I am talking about is like when you open the finder, in the bottom right corner you have that slider that lets you adjust the size of the icons.

MacBook Pro :: Flash Games Extremely Lagging

Nov 19, 2010

Not sure why, but during the last couple of days flash games have been lagging on my 13" MBP to the extreme. My MBP has 4GB of RAM and was built in late 2009. It has only been doing this for the last couple of days. Before that flash games were fine, no lag at all. But recently they lag even when I've just started playing. Right from square one.

MacBook Pro :: Extremely Slow Connection Through AirPort?

Jul 30, 2009

So when I use internet to connect to my WiFi connection, the speeds are at dial-up levels. My MacBook is almost right next to the router. After plugging ethernet in to it, it's going as fast as DSL should be.. 10-15x faster than it is over wireless. I understand that wired is always a little faster, but the difference shouldn't be this drastic. What should I do?

MacBook Pro :: Fans Going At Extremely High Speed

Aug 22, 2009

I have a late 2007 macbook pro and recently the fans have been going at extremely high speeds without the MBP being hot at all. I have SMCFanControl and iStat Pro and both of them said my MBP's temperature was around 55C though the fans were going between 4000 and 6000 RPM, I also checked the activity monitor for high CPU usage but nothing high there. I turned my MBP off for 5 minutes with a fan blowing on it just incase it was hot but when I turned it back on the fans immediately jumped back up to 6000 RPM. They're back to normal now but I assume it will happen again. Anyone know what's wrong?

MacBook Pro :: Extremely Quiet Clicking Noise

Aug 18, 2010

So this is a new MBP(returned it 2 times till i got the right one). So I have a very quiet bedroom, and when I have noticed that the macbook pro 13inch current model makes a click from time to time, it's like once or twice every hour. I was wondering if this is anything I should worry about? Getting another exchange is not an option, I mean I could but I rather not, cause the Apple store folks seem to be getting kind of tired of seeing me. For the Curious:

1st return - Sudden freezes that happened on the second day of purchase!
2nd return - The hinge stuck out on the left side.
Current MBP - I am starting to notice the quiet clicks, not sure if I should worry about it.

MacBook Air :: It Has Suddenly Become Extremely Slow And Is Always Crashing?

Jul 2, 2012

I have had my Macbook Air for a little more than 2 years. It has always worked pretty well. However, recently I went on vacation for 1 week without my laptop. When I returned home and went to turn on my computer, I noticed that it had become extremely slow. Firstly, turning on my computer has become an abnormally long process. It used to take about 2-3 minutes to turn on. Now, it takes a solid 10 minutes. Not only this, but once my computer has finally turned in, it usually takes another 10 minutes before I can open an internet browser. When I click on the browser (I used Google Chrome) no window will pop up, and after a few more clicks, my screen will freeze completely. Sometimes I will get the rainbow wheel and sometimes the screen just completely freezes without it. Sometimes I will try closing the lid of my computer and then reopening it, but when I do this, the screen stays black for a long period of time even after I have reopened it, almost as if the computer is off. After an excessive amount of key smashing and an abnormally large amount of time, the screen will finally stop being in sleep mode and show my desktop. Even then, my computer will still barely work. Once I finally get a window open and start using the internet, google chrome will end up crashing within at least 20 minutes. The entire screen will freeze, I won't be able to scroll down or exit out of the window, and I then usually have to repeat the painful process that I described above when I attempt to open my browser.

It has been over a week since I returned from vacation, and I deal with these issues every time. My computer has always been fine in the past, why is this suddenly happening? I have tried to remove some of my applications my going into Finder and highlighting the application and clicking Move to Trash, and then emptying the trash. This hasn't helped at all. Do you think that it would help to delete some of my files and data (pictures, documents, screenshots, downloads, ect) or is this irrelevant?

MacBook Pro :: Gets Extremely Hot On The Bottom - Fan Is No Longer Running

Jun 24, 2014

I have a late 2009 Macbook Pro.  It gets extremely hot on the bottom and I am worried there might come a time where it overheats.  I don't have the vents blocked, I shut it down consistently, and yet it still gets hot, almost to the point of being uncomfortable to the touch.  I have tried looking up info, but am not sure where to go.  What should be my next steps?

MacBook Air :: 11.6" MBA - Small And Extremely Portable - Able To Run OSX Lion

Nov 11, 2010

I'm considering purchasing the new 11.6" MBA with the 128GB SSD. I'm stuck whether I should get this, or wait for a new 13" MBP..

I am a writer so the computers main purpose would be for my writing and it's biggest positive is that it's small and extremely portable.

I am wondering however, will this MBA I'm looking at be able to run OSX Lion when it becomes available?

Also, anyone who has the 11.6" air if you could perhaps share your experience so far with it that would be excellent.

MacBook Pro :: Blown Speakers - Sound Extremely Static

Jun 16, 2007

I've had my MBP C2D for about 6-7 months now. Just recently both speakers seem to have blown. Any sound that comes out of it is extremely staticy. It happened the first time, but when I turned the sound off and back on again (with F3) it corrected itself. But now it's constant. I'm wondering if it's a hardware or a software issue. When I plug my iPod headphones into the side jack, I hear the same static. If it was just the speakers, wouldn't the headphones sound correct? Should I try to install the sound driver (can you do that in os x?), or do a reinstall of the OS? On a side note, I didn't buy the Apple Care package when I got my laptop.

OS X :: Extremely Slow Transfer Speed From External HD To Macbook

Apr 23, 2009

This ended up being pretty long but I tried to include as many details as possible. If any more information is needed please just let me know in this thread. I have been trying to figure this out all day and it has been driving me nuts. First of all I have a Macbook with a 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 4 GB of RAM and am running Mac OS X Version 10.5.6. Also this is the last generation of the "white" macbook that came out in February I believe of last year.

My external HD is a 1TB Rock Mobile Disk. For some reason when I try to transfer files to or from the external HD to my Mac I am getting nowhere near the expected 480MB/s. I do use a Swiss Gear 4-port USB splitter. When I use the splitter I am getting a transfer rate of about 120MB/s and without it I am only getting about 300MB/s. This is of course if I am only trying to transfer one 800MB movie. If I attempt to transfer multiple seasons of television shows it will drop to as low as 40-50MB/s. Also, if I were to be transferring a single season of a TV show. The transfer speed is much faster to click and drag every episode from my HD to my Mac than it is to transfer the entire folder at once. The whole folder might take 25 minutes but one at a time it will only take about 5.

MacBook Pro :: Extremely High Battery Consumption Rate

Mar 11, 2010

So I have a late 2008 MBP and the battery is draining way faster than it should. Coconut battery says that my battery capacity is at 93% and it only has 73 cycles but the battery has only been lasting 3 hours at best with a full charge, but most typically, it only lasts 2 hours while using the 9400m GPU and at idle. I have reset the battery per apple's instructions 2 times now and I have reset the SMC multiple times. this is what the system profiler says about my power capacity and consumption:

Model Information:
Serial Number:6N839TV313EB
Device name:bq20z951
Pack Lot Code:0000
PCB Lot Code:0000
Firmware Version:002a
Hardware Revision:000a
Cell Revision:0100
Charge Information:
Charge remaining (mAh):3522
Fully charged:No
Full charge capacity (mAh):4226
Health Information:
Cycle count:72
Battery Installed:Yes
Amperage (mA):-1449
Voltage (mV):11830

This all happened out of nowhere one day, I used to get a solid 5 hours on each charge a month ago and now this.

MacBook Pro :: Screen Was Extremely Flimsy And Broken Hinge On It?

Mar 31, 2012

After opening the lid yesterday morning, I noticed that the screen was extremely flimsy. Usually, it hardly rocks when i tap it, but now when I tap it, it rocks back and forth. I made an appointment with a local apple store for later this evening, but would they be able to fix this? I am very gentle with my Mac and have never dropped it. I also have AppleCare on it if that makes a difference.It seems to be the left side of the screen moving more than the right side is

MacBook Pro :: Extremely Hot / Hissing Sound / Slow To Charge

Aug 21, 2014

My Macbook pro has recently (a few weeks now) been giving me trouble. When I connect my charger a few things happen.

1. The chargers "brick" is extremely hot. (Note: this can usually be solved by placing the brick on a hard surface rather than a soft one).
2. My computer becomes extremely hot (Note: placing on hard surface sometimes allows computer to cool down, but not for long).
3. The part of my charger that connects to the port on my macbook is ridiculously hot.
4. A light hissing sound comes from my my computer where the charger is connected 5. My computer is very slow to charge and sometimes doesn't charge at all  

All of this seemed like an easy fix: get a new charger. However, I've used other chargers (from people who have absolutely no issues of their own with them) and I still have the same problems

MacBook Pro :: Froze And After Powering Down And Restarting It Has Been Extremely Slow

Jun 1, 2014

Friday afternoon my Mac froze and after powering down and restarting, it has been extremely slow. Before now it was running perfectly.  Now, it takes about 20 minutes to start up and then about another 20 minutes to load the dock and another 20 minutes to open an app, etc. It's impossible to use. I get the loading wheel between every word I type.   

After running in safe mode/repairing hard drive/etc. nothing had changed. So I just decided to backup all of my stuff and try to restore it to factory settings. I erased the hardrive and set up my computer again. It's still running the same way though. Extremely slow, impossible to use. I'm running on Mavericks 10.9.3. Is there anything I could do or could this be something like a failing hard drive?  

I bought my mac about 8 months ago. I already made an appointment at the genius bar for tomorrow night but I would really really rather not have to go.

MacBook Pro :: Late 2011 Sd Card Write Extremely Slow

May 26, 2012

I have a Macbook Pro late 2011 all Lion updates applied and want to use the integrated SD Card Reader (which, according to System Profiler is connected directly to the PCIe Bus).  

My SD card is a brand new Sandisk Extreme Pro, which is rated for 95MB/sec and 90MB/sec write speed. Reading from the card is quite fast, I get over 88MB/sec. Writing, however, is abysmally slow. I could not get more than 12,6MB/sec write speed (tested via transferring a 4GB ISO Image from/to the internal SSD). The same card on an old USB 2.0 reader connected to an ancient PC gives around 20MB/sec. I did not test it on another device with a fast SD reader yet.
