3 years of owning my Mac with no major issues. JUST after it’s AppleCare expires, it decides to start freaking out.

    Is there an “after market” Repair place near you? We have one here in Pittsburgh, if you are out of Apple Care they can still do repairs to your stuff… The only downside is you pay for it.

    Just a thought.

    I ordered a new fan and I'll put it in but I have to wait another 3 days until I get the part shipped to me. 3 more days of “el-grindorino” Bah! Grrrrr

    Good luck replacing that fan. MBPs are a PIA to work on. I would suggest considering saving up for a new Mac soon though. That '06 model is a beast and basically a Rev 0 design. I work for a major university as a Mac support specialist and see them all the time. You can probably get an early '08 model (last before the unibody) for under $1000.

    At least you didn't have your graphics processor completely die on your. It gave me the scare of my life and my warranty was up. But luckily my web savvy lead me to research the issue and it turned out that Apple fixes it for free because it's a defect on NVIDIA's part.

    Anyway, all the best with getting your fan fixed.
