    So i was working on my macbook, and it started making aweird noise, it clearly comes from the fans
    Then I continued surfing the web with no heavy CPU usage, and my macbook was slow as hell. It felt too hot. I checked the temperature using SMCfancontrol, and it was above 90C / 194F. I tried to spool them up manually, but they do not respond, and they do not go more than 2000 rpm, even under heavy cpu usage.
    I reset the SMC and PRAM, and no changes.
    I am currently exporting a FCPX project i was working on, in case I loose everything, and it is encoding at 103 C/217 F
    What is it?

    Mavericks 10,9,1
    4gb RAM
    2.26 GHz
    Nvidia 9400M 256 Mb
    250 GB HDD
    Macbook 13 inch, late 2009, unibody

    I am thinking that the fans are failing. Try doing an Apple Hardware Test by holding D at boot.
