    Hello!!

    My MacBook pro has been randomly shutting down since I replaced its battery. I was going to contact the seller of the battery for a replacement due the fact I suspect that i might have gotten a bad battery. I decided to go back into the machine before I contacted the seller and found what is in the picture; it appears the heat sink screw rivet has popped off the motherboard!!

    any way to fix?
    also would that cause my system to overheat and cause the shut downs? I notice that the fans aren't really running that much and I have to over drive them with istat though it does still shut down when on battery power

    Edit: It also turns off under magsafe power also :/
    SMC Reset; Pram reset nothing seems to be working

    Take it into an Apple Store or authorized reseller

    Impressed that Apple are still making them 90 years into the future...
