    And up next is the heat-sink.

    It wasn't a surprise when I took the heat-sink off and discovered that the thermal paste was pretty much dried up into solid clay.

    First thing I did was take it apart and clean it with a fine brush and vacuum.
    It was actually relatively clean inside. Typical dust in vent/fan shroud, and underneath logic board.

  3. Bought another 15" Macbook Pro :D

    So, one of my goals has always been to buy a 2010 15"/17" MacBook Pro with the hi-res matte screen option to add to my collection. Well, I came across an opportunity to own one for a price that was...

    I'm all for pictures and tutorials when you do decide to switch your keyboard :D
  5. What is it with Google Search showing SO MANY ads in search results???

    Has anyone noticed how there are A LOT of ads posted as search results when searching for something on google? Almost all links show as actual 'ads' or store links! It's SOOOOOO annoying, and is now...

    One of the things I love the most about the new MacBook Pros has to be their speaker system! They are some of the best speakers in the business! Clear volume, and great tones no matter what media is...

    What I found interesting is the claim of the new Macbook Air not being a redesign, but being able to use the 'new' keyboard. Makes me wonder if this new keyboard is swappable in other MBPd, and if...

    Are you sure you did a proper SMC reset? The MagSafe light going from green to amber is an indicator of SMC error. All modern Macbooks with built in batteries have only a "soft-core" SMC reset via...

    Fan noise
    You mentioned in the previous thread that you tried cleaning the mac pro with compressed air. Problem with compressed air is that you can't control the trajectory of the dust that you are...

    I don't believe it's exactly the same. Anyways, most that say something like that are too ignorant to know the exact specs of a Mac to know what comparable part they would need to compare it to. Most...

    The "Pro" argument when talking prices is ridiculous, especially when you consider EVERY SINGLE Mac Pro previous to this generation has been half the cost, and not had any significant differences...

    I like the design, especially the 3D spherical machining. $6k though? Why does it cost that much for a base model? I'm sure a top spec model will most likely come close to $50k, but I'm disappointed...

    Why are you stuck on a Mac Mini?
    From what you said you need, and your experience of what's already been choking, a Mac Pro or high end iMac is the only recommendation I'd make.
    The Mac Mini has...

    I have an extremely hard time believing your GPU is "burnt". And I will straight up say that person who said so is an idiot.
    In fact, I'd bet $100 that it's not burnt for 3 simple reasons:

    I was literally in your exact predicament ~2 months ago. I bought the new 15" Macbook Pro w/Touch Bar(2.2GHz i7, 16gb ram 256gb flash). It is way more than enough for your needs with the i7. IMO, you...

    There's an old-school game that I believe was called Tank 1990 that was turned into an online flash/html5 version.

    Here is a link I quickly found of that EXACT game: Tank 1990 Chrome Games

    7 to 10 hours is too long in my opinion with any battery 3rd party battery. My guess is probably 3-4 hours of normal use. Unfortunately, I don't think there has ever been a 3rd party manufacturer...

    Some things to note:



    If the issue was related to the flash drive, you would get a folder icon on bootup. That reason can be eliminated.
    If the SMC is confused, the battery indicator light...

    I feel bad for the people that bought AppleCare just for this problem on their newer computers. 4 years of coverage for this issue seems like a good amount of time, especially since they will replace...
