My fans are blasting away
I am having a similar issue. My mid 2010 macbook pro gets very hot and the fans blast regularly and are very loud. I switched to a solid state drive a couple of months ago and 8gb of ram (otherwise I have a stock machine) and the problem was worse initially, so I had to do a complete re-install of el capitan. I saw that this works on another forum. This seemed to solve the problem for about a month, but now my fans are blasting away again.
I'll periodically go into the CPU in activity monitor and delete certain programs, and that seems to calm the fan down for a couple minutes, but then it starts blazing again.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
Is this a good question?
