Can I fix an incorrect temp. sensor/disable it?
My mac hit a massive issue randomly where it didn't boot, a problem with the HDD...
OK got it fixed, HDD failed, restored my files, got everything working again, but hey... wait my screen went black. its still on and working, I still hear it react to things i do
It just turns the screen off, and wont turn back on. so I restart it and the screen turns off again, this time not running but booting, then again while in the boot screen while I was about to check recovery. I let it sit and cool for a while but it was odd because it wasnt even too warm, hottest part of my system has always been the GPU and it usually hit 150°F at tops.
I go into recovery after letting it cool and it shuts off again after 10 minutes. I let it cool again, for it to start once again, I run it normally, so I can check my system fan controller to check how hot its getting...
The mac is cold to the touch, all my things are marked cold, but the GPU? nope. the GPU diode is marked to be at 200°F when its cold, and it just goes up until it hits 270 then shuts off my screen and I have to let it cool, to stop this I have fans running max and even a desk fan blowing on it, still turns off when i stress the GPU, I have reason to believe that its the sensor because its consistent to appearing way too hot and the GPU showing no signs of issues other than that.
How can I correct this or just disable the sensor? (preferably without opening the system and pulling the sensor plug)
Apple won't help me because my Mac can't run 10.13.
restarted my mac a few minutes ago, resetting the SMC
now the other GPU stuff are also marked way too hot, again, i would normally feel this on my case but its cold.
edit: i told them to turn up based on the GPU sensor's activity, to keep it stable, only stable settings i found that didnt make the fans run at max, which it does most of the time anyways.
~~standard mac fan settings AKA closing the program just turns the CPU fan up halfway until the screen goes black and then the fan just turns back down. my personal settings worked so long and never let my hardware get too hot but doesn't work anymore as of a few days ago
Is this a good question?
