(SOLVED) Does anyone know how to reset the SMC directly? Solved
(SOLVED - please read info below the original message)
Does anyone know how to reset the SMC directly from the MBP 2007 A1226 (820 2101-A, model of the logic board )? Is it more effective than the standard cmd-option r+p? The fans of my MBP blast full speed from the start and have not temperatures available). This could really need a proper reset. Please let me know if there's a way. Many thanks.
SOLVED (For your consideration if you're having a similar problem)
I've managed to solve my MBP 2007 santa rosa blasting fans problem. SMC reset on the board wasn't necessary. The problem was that even after resetting the SMC (the 5 seconds bypass), the machine wouldn't assume it because my battery had no charge (because my MBP wasn't charging or even detecting it). Somehow it was requiring some juice to take the SMC reset into effect.
I was lucky enough to have a spare MBP that charged my battery and then I tested it on my faulty machine.
All of the sudden, after inserting a fully charged battery (after doing the SMC bypass/reset) my machine decides to boot quietly like the blasting fans problem had never existed.
It's great to have my machine back to normal.
Would like to thank the community for the snippets of information here and there that helped solve my case.
Is this a good question?
