My Problem

My MacBook Santa Rosa was heating and the noise of the fan was too loud.

My Problem

La ventola, oltre a essere rumorosa, iniziava a perdere giri e le temperature salivano troppo; dopo anni di servizio era arrivata al capolinea.

My Fix

Dopo la sostituzione il computer è tornato silenzioso e le temperature sono nuovamente sotto controllo.

La prima ventola che mi hanno spedito si è rivelata . . .

My Problem

My daughter's Mac sounded like a lawnmower when it got hot.

My Fix

Repair was relatively straightforward following the guide on iFixit.

My Advice

Some of the steps refer to a #0 Philips but a smaller screwdriver works better. Watch out for the screws behind the memory cover. When replacing, use light pressure to get t . . .
