    Hey there,
    I have been a pc user for 15 years and it came the time to buy a laptop for school. So i decided to try a mac. the turd at the store convinced me the macbook was the one for me. so i brought it home and it took some time getting used to, but i finally had to install vista via bootcamp due to the limited applications.
    not a big deal.
    but my major problem is the fan noise! starting up the first time of the day the fan kicks into high gear within minutes and sounds like a jet engine taking off. its so loud that i cannot sit in class because it distracts others around me. i googled around and found this to be a common problem with macbooks so i installed Fan Control and it stated that my left fan is funning at 6400rpm and my right one is -1.
    does this mean its broken? is this why my fan is sooooooo loud?
    i called apple and they said reset the smc which i did and it fixed it for maybe 5 minutes then back to the jet take off.
    the weird thing is, while running in vista there is no fan noise unless im under high cpu load?
    what should i do?
