    Computer hot and slow, is the fan broken?
    Hey, I just took my Macbook Pro out of it's case and it was really hot and was not logging in right (a probably unrelated problem that happens sometimes) and so I had to force it to shut down by holding down the power button, and when I started it up it was really slow, even when It was logged in, until now. I did not hear the fan running at all at any point, and when my fan runs I can defiantly hear it. Does this mean my computers fan it broken? If so what problems could it cause, are the problems I was having related, and is it replaceable?
    Please help, and thank you.

    If the fan stops or is not running in your MacBook Pro, the machine will shut itself off after a very short time. Go to iFixit: The free repair manual and look up the take apart instructions for your machine and check to see if your fan is clogged with dust and dirt.
