so, last week my late 2010 13" macbook pro shut down by itself and there was a burning smell.  after a few testing i found out my fan wasn't working.  But today, in bootcamp, i tried playing skyrim when the fan suddenly start spinning again.


My question is;


1) What was that burning smell? It came out from the exhaust area.

2) Why did my fan stop and started working again? is it a serious problem?


I cant get to a service center right now, too much work. 3 days without my mac will kill me =)

Macbook Pro 13 2010, Mac OS X (10.6.4)
