    I've noticed that when I shutdown the mac, the fan stay on and it become hot. So the issue is that it doesn't turn off completely

    To be able to turn on again I have to reset the smc
    I can just put it on stop

    thanks for the help

    You know, I think it would be easiest to just take it to an Apple store for the geniuses to look at...Kernel panics can be quite complicated to resolve and without being able to actually have the computer most here probably wouldn't be able to help you.

    Did you try to reinstall the software?

    Reinstalling software wouldn't do anything, it is a hardware issue.

    is too easy say "It's the mainboard"
    It's like say "Change the computer"

    should be something broken, and I would like to fix it

    Wat in heaven did I just read! Well if he diagnosed that was a bad/fail logic board I don't think there are other issues! :rolleyes: and don't think he is getting any commission or love to replace logic board all day. I know I was an Apple tech.

    Yeah, unfortunately there's no way around it :( If the Genius told you that you need a new logic board, you probably do...and as you heard, it's not cheap! If you could chip in a bit more, you could probably grab a pretty decent MacBook used from eBay.

    As with your current computer, take the hard drive out and see if you could sell it on eBay for parts...although with a broken logic board, I'm not quite sure how well it'd sell and for what price.

    If replacing the logic board costs $500, it's either $500 to your MacBook or $500 + $x towards a newer computer, I'd choose the latter personally ;)
