My MacBook has been overheating for over a year now. More recently it has begun to perform alarms and automatic shutdowns.
Also on startup there is (a moment) where I see a black screen with source code of some sort before the screen resumes with the grey bootup screen.
Today I have installed Mac Fan Control, and realize that the fan still works on my computer, hopefully I can prevent anymore burning (smell) from the laptop. Previously I had smcFanControl but it stopped pushing the fan above 2000 so I just thought that my fan didnt work for a long time
I also had my laptop/fan cleaned with air so I dont believe there is any blockage recently.
I have a screenshot showing the current temperatures, I would like to know what temperatures are ideal, safe or average and I will do my best to prolong the life of my laptop by keeping my fans spinning above 2000+ and being more mindful and keeping Activity Monitor open!
