Sound and video freezes
I've been playing a lot of YouTube videos recently which has caused the fan to whir a lot more than usual. Then I noticed the audio on my earbuds quit, and when I tried to adjust the volume on the keyboard controls the onscreen sound display had a line through it (the "no" diagonal line) and I could not adjust sound.
Now, when I first turn the computer on, sound and video work fine for a while, but after a while of use, the audio quits. The computer appears to run fine other than audio cutting out. This isn't just with the earbuds, but the internal speakers as well.
When this happens and I'm watching a video, the video AND audio stops playing.
If I'm listening to a CD or to iTunes when the sounds goes out, the countdown timer on the song also stops, as well as the audio output.
One other thing I've noticed is a slightly yellow discoloration (about 1 1/2" diameter) on the white plastic on the bottom of the computer, right under the 1,2,3 keys. In the center of the discoloration, there is a very small (dime sized) area where the finish has actually chipped off. No doubt this is from heat.
So.. is this computer "done for"?
If repairs would be fairly costly, I'd prefer to sell it as is. What might it be worth as it is?
MacBook white 13" _ 2.2GHz C2D _4GB RAM _250GB HD
Is this a good question?
