    ^ :eek: thats my cpu heat when it doesn't have an Electric fan steadied and I heard a loud fan noise yesterday before this thing happened.

    I already did SMC reset but it didn't help and also Apple Hardware Test, here's the result:
    Purchase this at V-Mall Digital Walker, Is there anyway I can do to fix it than smc reset? If not, will it take more than a day if I return it back to Digital Walker for repair? thanks

    I suggest send it back to digital walker and have it check.

    If its diagnose with a problem usually it takes 7-14 days for the repair (not so sure with the estimated day). HTH

    Thanks Joy!

    7-14 days? I thought it can be done right away. :(

    Hmm, I can maintain the heat around 50 degrees since the fan is still working somehow. Will it cause more damage if I use it in the meantime? or do I really need to send it back ASAP?

    yeah, the same thing happened to me. My right fan registered 0 rpm. I asked digital hub to check if it's just dirt. Ayun, within 1 hour, ayos na :)
