Does my battery cause extreme overheating?
Hey all, I have a six year old PowerBook which is still more than capable of handling my everyday tasks i.e. Photoshop use, web-browsing, viewing movies in Quicktime e.t.c (heck I even get to do a tad of video editing on this baby when it complies with me), but I have a problem. It over-heats to the point where I have to put it on a cold floor to cool it down sufficiently enough to work with it again. My battery can't work at all without the charger plugged in (it's pretty much fried), so I am aware that this is one of the first things to repair. Could this be the reason for all my overheating? Or does this simply mean that my fans aren't working correctly? Any help given would be great, as I don't want to hand my PowerBook over to a Mac specialist yet, just in case they try to bump me on how many things are wrong with my laptop, and then over-charge me. I thought coming to ifixit.com first would be a great advantage!
Thank you for all your time, and I look forward to any replies to this post!
