Hello there everyone, this is my first post. :)

anyways, i am led to believe my fans on my new(ish) macbook pro on Snow Leopard v10.6.2 are not working. I think this because when i have it on my lap and am using it to listen to music and surf the web, it gets pretty hot.

So, i downloaded this program Lobotomo Software: MoofMenu that lets me control the fans and how much they work, and I saw that the right fan was seemingly at -1 RPMs. i dont know how this has managed to happen, but, it has, and i dont like the looks of it. (see attached screenshot)

Anyways, I was wondering if there was a way i could check and make sure this was real and not just something wrong with the app. and, if it isnt, what i should do with the macbook.

A way to check mechanically is to go on youtube, watch a movie, or play a game on your notebook.

You will hear the fans kick in eventually and if they don't, you have a problem. ;D

the right fan reads negative because there is no right fan in the 13"MBP just one on the left
