    Fan comes on and stays on
    I have a large imac, aluminium

    The whole thing seemed to be running slow, and seemed hot. I shut it down and on restart a fan came whirring on immediately, as soon as the start up button is pushed. I have tried reinstalling operating system, still the same.

    I have tried smcfancontrol, but it doesn't seem to even register a temperature or fan speed

    I have tried the istats widget thing, and that doesn't register any fans, or at least I can't get it to show anything

    Anyone got ideas on what has happened?

    Did you try resetting the PRAM? Sounds like the controller that monitors all the temp sensors is out to lunch.
