    I have a 2007 white C2D 2.16 MacBook.

    Over the last couple of days it has been getting extremely hot, too hot to put on my lap or even touch sometimes. I have iStat pro but have never paid any attention to the temps before so i can't tell how much it has actually risen.

    Also my power adapter doesn't light up properly. It will go the right colour for a bit and then just go a really faint green that i can just make out if the room light is off. If i unplug it and then plug it back in it comes back on, but only for a few minutes or so. The computer still charges tho.

    I am out of Apple Care so i don't really know what to do.

    It be nice to know if you have any suggestions on how to fix these problems.

    Thanks alot.

    If you could share your temperatures, that would be helpful in determining if they're normal or not. I'm typing from the same model and my case bottom is idling at 28º; anything from 27-33 has been normal for that sensor during low use periods.
