One year old MacBook Pro, 2.33GHz Core2 Duo, 2 GB RAM, OSX.
The computer constantly overheats
when ever it is on, so the fans are constantly running at 6000rpm in attempts to cool mainly my CPU. The thing is, it's pretty annoying to have the fans on 24/7.
One situation I've found that the computer won't overheat and the fans won't run in overdrive is when the MBP isn't plugged in. Which, of course, i would do constantly, only that my battery only has a life remaining of about less than an hour. Which brings me to my next issue.
, will never tell me when it is about to die now. It used to, then it stopped doing it, like it hates me or something.
I'm considering buying a new battery, but money is a bit tight. And I was wondering if replacing one of the sticks of RAM with a 2gig would make it more efficient.
1) Computer overheating all the time, no processes being ran at all except for the basics.
2) Where is a good trustworthy place to buy a battery at a good price?
