Thank you for taking the time to show that. Or, spend just a little money and try to do it yourself, knowing that a new one might be worth it anyway if something goes wrong. When I reopened it, my wife noticed the big flat keyboard cable was disconnected. This is most definitely not an upgrade for those with limited hardware hacking experience. Wonder which Mac model you were working on. They never went back together perfectly at the front seams, but were acceptable; much better than having to live without the thing for a week.
Hi nkoros, I have contemplated researching hence this question!. After a couple of years, and my lap being burned with 212 degrees of not so good cooling I want to upgrade my laptop to something that can actually game. I'll pack and ship it on my own FedEx Ground return Ship your product to our facility using your carrier of choice. Unfortunately, I left it at my parents overseas and can bring it back to the States after the warranty expires. Should I stick with a Macbook Pro or switch to an Air or the regular Macbook? This especially happens when i'm in the middle of doing a webinar. I could clearly see the fan blades had been rubbing on the metal plate.
I remember pulling out an old, 2010 plastic MacBook a few years ago running Lion. I use it for my freelance work, Photoshop, Illustrator and After Effects. I kept a 1999 iMac running for seven years. You don't have to worry about viruses. Photos is hugely improved in High Sierra.
After putting the new on in, I took my old one apart and applied a minuscule amount of 3-in-1 oil to the shaft. Deliveries to residential addresses in 3 to 7 business days, depending on shipping distance. The parts needed to be ordered and it would take 2-3 days once they were in. Plus that bug is present in a couple of fully supported Macs too, so it's not the fault of the unsupported install. I went ahead while it was open and investigated the fan noise.
Mike, thank you so much for your help. Thanks for sharing your experience. AnandTech instead installed processors with an integrated heat spreader and upon the first time reattaching the heatsinks killed one of the new processors, the Mac Pro processor board, and one of the heatsinks. I know I've gotten my money's worth out of this computer, but haven't quite decided what I should upgrade to. Since it is a very old MacBook, do you think you might replace it soon?

My fan also makes the same noise. I have been having similar problems with my MacBook Pro.
I'm not doing any heavy computing or gaming, but I do use the laptop 8-9 hours a day. Core 2 Duo with hardware video acceleration is adequate for surfing. It isn't free, but it's fairly cheap. I have been told by my computer guy that I am trying to run a 2009 laptop with 2016 software and that is the reason why. More details about specific identifiers are provided in EveryMac.
Your screen looks like it has the same discoloration issues that mine has had. Which is fine that is what I use. Apple really should just replace these even outside of warranty and applecare, but they know we are hooked and will buy the next ones anyway. A can of compressed air and tweezers are also recommended. I use quickbooks, email and surf the web. I have the same model MacBook Pro mid-2009.
Randy, where did you buy the fan alone. For complete disclaimer and copyright information please read and understand the and the before using EveryMac. This means you adjust a slider to control your fan speeds. I will make a list of all the software I use to check how they work with El Capitain since Sierra ist not fully done yet.
