French: Bonjour, une des solutions à ce problème consiste à installer un logiciel, TG Pro, qui permet de régler la vitesse des ventilateurs en fonction de la température des composants TG Pro J'ai eu le même problème sur un imac 24 de 2008, c'était la carte vidéo qui était en cause, je l'ai passée au four et ça l'a réparée, ensuite j'ai installé TG Pro pour éviter la surchauffe de la carte vidéo et le mac tient après plusieurs mois. Regardez ce post, si vous avez des problèmes avec l'Anglais dites-le moi je traduirais Will my iMac run without nvidia card? English: Hello, one solution to this problem is to install software, TG Pro, which adjusts the fan speed according to the temperature of the component TG Pro I had the same problem on a imac 24 in 2008, it was the video card that was involved, I spent it in the oven and fixed it, then I installed TG Pro to prevent overheating video card and mac held after several months. Look at this post, if you have problems with the English tell me I will translate for...
Hello, the usb sata enclosure is used to put a sata disk into it and to connect it to a mac or pc in usb mode, so you can use an internal sata disk as a usb external disk, it's very convenient to recycle an internal sata disk. Yes you can clone your removed internal disk this way.
Hi my graphic card cooking lasts since a month now and works perfectly, I'm using istats menus as temperature monitor and the heat stays between 40 and 75° Celsius when I watch movies. I have an imac 20" 2008 which had no problem but I monitor it also and when the temperature of the AC/DC supply goes near 80°C I increase the fan speed to make it work under 70°. Curiously the 24" doesn't heat as much as the 20". The idea I think is to keep the AC/DC supply and the CPU die under 70° C by increasing the fans speed. I'll post if the graphic card needs another baking, but in the meantime I cross my fingers !!! André PS : the mbp 2007 doesn't support temperatures much higher than 82-85°, it shuts down by itself, I imagine that Apple provided the same precaution for the imacs but it never happened to me.
Hello I had a problem with my graphic card nvidia geforce 8800 gs on an imac 24' 2008, like a lot of people. I removed the graphic card, put it in an oven at 195° C for 8 mn and it works again now. I arlready did the same operation with a mbp 2007 where the chip is soldered on the mother board but then it lasted from 3 to 6 months before I had to do it again, 5 times now in 3 years. I hope that it will last more with the imac, but still it's a cheap way to solve the problem. On this site you have the long story and the procedure : http://russell.heistuman.com/2010/04/27/...-the-books-or-baking-my-macbook-pro-logic-board/ And on ifixit you'll find the guide to remote the graphic card : iMac Intel 24" EMC 2267 Graphics Card Replacement Good luck
Hello, another story of quilt which worked for a few weeks on 2 mbp 2007, but what lasts the longer is the oven, it's the method of this guy : http://russell.heistuman.com/2010/04/27/...-the-books-or-baking-my-macbook-pro-logic-board/ It works for 2 to 5 months for me, and I've done it 5 times now !! Next time I'll try maybe the new chip, but it's a bit costly from France and second hand mbp are cheaper and cheaper… I repair a few mbp from friends and my conclusion is that they are too expensive for what they last when you buy them brand new, I suppose that 3-4 years is a good mtbf for Apple. The aluminium imacs last twice that time and more, but the white imacs 17" had a lot of problems with screens and components, so Apple is not exactly BMW, but osx is more fun than windows and ubuntu, so … and I imagine that electronic products should be considered as expensive consumer products. But ifixit existence is a very good thing, I do use it for iphones and macs and the repair guides are very precious to me,...
Hello I had the same problem with another make of washing machine, the problem came from a little device (I forgot the name in English) which checked that the door was closed. If you push around the handle of the door or on some places of the door maybe it will work. Good luck
Hello dries thanks for your answer, I used it and it works on a macbookpro 3,1. Would you by any chance know how to get the fans turn to 2000 rpm ? Because it's a bit noisy at 4000 rpm. Thanks in advance André
