Hi, I have a mid 2006 MBP with the CD 2.0 Ghz processor. Lately it has been locking up on me which forces me to do a hard reset. I have been troubleshooting for months and have come to the conclusion that it is a heat issue. I installed smc fan control and istat menus to monitor the temp. With smc on default, when stressing the cpu, the temp got up to 183F/83C and the screen went blank, i did notice that the fans were up to about 1100rpm. Also if I open multiple windows and use expose, it usually causes it to freeze while it is at a high temp. If I run the fans at 6000rpm (max) it does not freeze and stays at around 130F/54C. Since my computer is out of warranty, has anyone had success getting Apple to fix it out of warranty for free since it is a health risk being as hot as it is. Also what can I do about this if Apple will not help me? Thanks.
