    My fans are constantly going on my g4 powerbook and the noise drives me nuts. I do all sorts of work - graphics (CS2), music recording, multimedia... but even when I am just not doing anything intensive the fans are on.

    The fans are at full speed now and the temp reads 37C / 98F. I've used an icurve since I got the machine.

    I've put up with this noisy sound for a couple years now. One person said I need to clean the air vents, like dust is causing the noise. Does anyone know about this?

    its a g4 titanium powerbook 867 mhz 768 RAM (ancient I know but it still works!)

    thanks for any help!!
