Hello!! I'm looking for some advice regarding some issues I've had with my MacBook pro. I got my MacBook pro in September 2010. Straight away I had issues. These are the issues I have had 3 genius bar appointments for so far (the first appt being in November 2010.) 1)The battery was only lasting a maximum of 3-4hrs no matter what I was doing. 2)The fans would go crazy 4000+rpm. 3)Then permissions were mucked up. I would send a file to another computer and they would always be locked and the files could not be trashed. 4) The ) key stopped working, I had to create a new home account and move everything over to get the key to work. The last two genius bar appointments the diagnostic showed that my hard-drive had failed and I was told it would be replaced. Both times it was not replaced. They told me that it was the fan causing the hard drive to register a failure. Now i am having the same issues again but worse. The fan runs at 5000+RPM at times. It beach balls and is generally slow to respond. Permissions are mucked up and files I send to other computers are locked and cannot be deleted. I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas or can give me any help with what to do next. Should I make another genius bar appointment? Explaining that there must be an issue with the hard drive? Or are there any possible causes for the issues I am experiencing? I can't keep going back to the apple store (I live in Peterborough where there is no apple store so I travel to the apple store in London) I have work that I need my computer for I cant keep sending it away for repair for 3 weeks at a time. Then I get it back with the no new hard drive and the same issue recurring! TL;DR?: Is my MacBook Pro fu*ked?
