NOT ANTS!redeye_be said:Maybe it's just some ants that found their way to a nice, happy warm spot.
Serious, don't turn it on again until you know what it is. Open it yourself or let a tech do it for you.
I hope you have guarantee or applecare.
Be sure to backup.eAi said:Just want to clarify. Its not a burning smell, its a kinda plastic-too-hot smell (a bit like disinfectant). I took it appart about half way and cleaned out all the dust which appears to have helped (there was tonnes of it, I was wondering where it had all got to!). Everything is backed up, so I'll wait and see...
