    Hello,
    My cousin has a Macbook Pro which is at least two years old, and it has been encountering some bad problems recently. There are two main problems described below.

    DVD Drive:
    -Optical Superdrive makes clicking noises when trying to mount blank disks and fails to burn them, eventually ejecting them by itself. Apple had replaced it a while back, but they haven't kept information on the replacement so they refused to service it.

    Fans and Overheating:
    -Computer reaches really high temeperatures and the fans vary randomly from 10RPM to 2003 RPM.

    Thanks for your help. I understand that at this point, it seems as it has reached the end of its life, but I would really appreciate some help if anybody is familiar with MBP Hardware.

    Doubt most people will have similar hardware problems...but by any chance does your cousin have apple care? If worst comes to worst, I would sell it on CL and get the $ to buy a new MBP.
