I have a MacBook Pro 1,1 with the 1st gen Intel Core Duo chip set.
It's been running hot - and I been trying to figure out why.
I downloaded "smcfancontrol_2_1" and it says the left & right fans are 0 RPM.
The FAQ for this applications says it is updated to run with Intel MBP.

I do not have the Apple Hardware Test program for this system - I bought it 2nd-hand.
I've looked on Apple Support site, and there are 5 or 6 AHT iso images - for the PPC systems.

Does anyone know where I can download the AHT program for the MBP?
I'd like to verify the fans are really dead.

Of course, that might explain why it is running so hot.
QUOTE Thanks
