It looks like my old MacBookPro (from 2007) might be giving up the ghost. It's been running exceedingly hot lately. Hot enough it shut down once or twice. Got a usb cooler under it, buuuuuuuut… I've just had to do a reboot and now it seems it will not restart.
Not quite sure what the Hell is going on around here, but I have to admit, I'm starting to get a little nervous.
I've shut it down to let it cool off a bit and will try again later.
I don't think it will break my heart if it dies. Sure, I'll be upset. It's been my workhorse computer for quite some time. Made mods to it over the years. I put one of those hybrid hard drives in it a couple years ago. It boots really fast, 45 seconds or less usually, so I KNOW something is seriously wrong here.
Cracked the display on it a year or so back and that has been progressing towards un-usability. I was going to replace the LCD after I got a job, but if the thing is croaking anyway, well pfffffft!
I'll yank the drive and maybe put it in my MacMini or use it as a backup drive. Wait. What?!
