Hello guys and gals I really need your hep here. I know it is old but i have this machine down here Model Name: MacBook Pro Model Identifier: MacBookPro3,1 Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo Processor Speed: 2.4 GHz Number Of Processors: 1 Total Number Of Cores: 2 L2 Cache: 4 MB Memory: 4 GB Bus Speed: 800 MHz Boot ROM Version: MBP31.0070.B07 SMC Version (system): 1.16f11 Serial Number (system): W88040H8X92 Hardware UUID: 00000000-0000-1000-8000-001B63A231FB Sudden Motion Sensor: State: Enabled It's running on a 10.6.8 v and its getting really hard to work now. Battery has been warning me about its own depletion for months, now it claims service. I've tried many strategies to clean the machine, getting rid of big software, a lot of email has been thrown away, I've verified and repaired permission twice and I don't want to turn it off again cause when I do, it takes ages for the screen to jump from the blue screen and many time it doesn't until I restart on safe mode and back again. Battery is off now. Looks his days are coming to an end. Besides 6 months ago it was recalled serviced because of a problem with the motherboard. Any idea? Your replies greatly appreciated. Many, many thanks. Ah I just installed Mackeeper too.
