hey this is my first ever post, and i made my account specifically for this reason... so please... someone out there, help me by god!!! alright... i got my MB in october 2007, and it ran great for about a year and half, but just recently, its been dogging and lagging so much, its bugging the crap out of me to the point where i borrowed my friends external HD and put all my important stuff on there, and erased and reinstalled mac OSX on there, and it still behaves the same way. my specs are in my signature so let me explain... ill be running just itunes, ichat, and safari watching youtube videos or something, and the youtube vids just start skipping, and then the sound gets all distorted like it sounds like its underwater gargling. then i shut the macbook, reopen it, and its fine for about 2 or so minutes and then it does it again. or ill be listening to music via itunes, and reading some forums or the news or something, and when i scroll down, the music skips. its really annoying. i rarely get beach balling, but safari, or firefox, or itunes takes an eternity to load. and my fan allways seems like its on, and running hot as hell. cpu user runs about 63% to 70% all the time system about 15% memory: active- .98 gb to 1gb wired: 319 mb temps: allways around 150 F or a little higher. fans exaust- 6192 rpm as you can see... my computer is a beast right now, and im not even pushing it that hard to preform!! i got the fan controll utility, and it doesnt seem to do anything for the temp. someone out there must have a great solution for me!! as i stated before, i reformatted like a week ago, and its still the same!! please please please help meeee!!!! thanks in advance! --Ricky L.
