There is an alternative reset SMC. I once solved the problem of MagSafe not charging the battery. The “normal” reset SMC do not work for me. If you can not solve the problem of high fan speed, maybe this is an alternative. 1 - Turn off the Macbook Pro. 2 - Disconnect the MagSafe. 3 - Open the bottom of Macbook Pro 2011 (screws). 4 - Disconnect the plug battery that is connected to the logic board (Photo). https://d3nevzfk7ii3be.cloudfront.net/igi/eTItfxSqYQIKnTf1.medium 5 - Press the Power button for 30 seconds. The Macbook Pro 2011 will try to turn on but there is no power (Magsafe unplugged and battery connector unplugged). Any remaining charge from the logic board and the rest of the Macbook Pro will be discharge. 6 - Reconnect the battery plug to the logic board. 7 - Close the bottom of the Macbook Pro 2011 with the screws. 8 - Connect the MagSafe in Macbook Pro 2011 and press the Power button to turn on the Macbook. Example: In my case I added press the Power button for 30 seconds. Old times of PC notebook. Some people disconnect the plug from the battery and wait for 2 minutes.
