MacBook Pro Randomly shuts off
MacBook Pro 13" 7.1 mid 2010 2.4ghz
Put a brand new SSD in it, OS X sierra, reset prams, sds and still shuts off. Took it to apple and they said it was the battery, I know that the battery needs to be replaced and the Apple Store told me that I could take out the battery and just run the computer without the battery so I tried it and it still randomly shuts off with just AC power. Please help!!!!
I will try to download coconut battery but not sure if I will have time to before it shuts off.
The fan has no dust I already blow it it and when the computer starts up the fan turns on but the computer shuts off before it would have a chance to get hot.
I will open it up tonight and take a look at the fan again and try and download the coconut battery.
Update guys!!! I broke down and took everything apart and blow/cleaned it out found a huge dust bunny in the fan/heat sink and I replaced the thermal paste ( FYI the old stuff was so dried out it was like chalk). I think it was the thermal paste cause I have had it playing videos for the last hour and it hasn't turned off so I believe for now it is fixed!!!!
Is this a good question?
