that was me. lol!!
This was stage 1 of 20 in my Official Whiterussian Revenge Plan (OFWRP).
my macbook charger is hotter than the sun. Hasn't melted yet but I'm fairly sure it could fry 10 eggs.
the fan is mental as well, should probably get a new one.
Genuinely laughing! Sorry Ms. Russian :(
It overheats if I play videos longer than 15 minutes and isn't actually portable coz the battery stopped working years ago. Piece of junk.
take it to the store and they'll replace it. and do it promptly or BAD STUFF happens.
plus it seems to be working ok again now.
i think there was a recall. besides which, your charger is MELTING.
aren't you a student? why didn't you get applecare? it costs like, hardly any money if you're a student.
i got one at the same sort of time.
i complained at them about this so many times [and got so many replacement chargers and batteries] that they eventually caved in and gave me free applecare at the end of last yr [my macbook is nearly 3 yrs old.] WIN.
also, you can download a free program called smcFanControl that lets you regulate the speed of the fan, making your laptop cooler. it lives in the top bar and tells you how hot it is. it's quite good.
i've downloaded it now and it seems to be helping (y)
my sisters charger burnt the wire where it connects to the adapter. mac chargers i think are made to break.she got a official charger for €20 on ebay and after a week the battery wouldnt work without the charger in it.
