lately my notebook has been getting really hot and just shutting down or sometimes when im dj'n with traktor, it'll just shut off. i've been reading up on similar issues and noticed that all the models that were produced the year i bought mine, have a defective logic board that was recalled but i'm just finding out about it now and no longer have any type of apple care coverage. would i be able to just buy a new logic board on the internet and fix my problem?

Apple may have a recall policy in place that overrides any Applecare.

Try contacting Apple first to see if there is a recall policy on that model first

yup i tried that but they want me to pay for the call since my apple care is done. the macbook was bought way back in 2007 so i doubt they going to provide free support.

It may not be a defective logic board, have you tried opening it up and just spraying the internals with compressed air to get any dust out

ive opened it up before to replace my keyboard and did some cleaning but never used a can of compressed air, just pretty much dusted everything off with a small paint brush. but i will give that another try, thanks
