my MBP (early 2008) seems to have a corrupted SMC.
Operations that i think are managed by the SMC like booting and sleeping are having big issues:
Then it suddenly stops and a blue screen appears. This blue screen stays there for several minutes. Then i can hear a little sound from the hard disc and the desktop appears as always and i can use OSX without any problems.
I already formated the hard disc and reinstalled OSX 10.6 twice, but the problem still occurs.
And I already tried to reset the SMC (pressing 5sec power button etc) and tried to clean the PRAM. I have no clue if the resets were actually done. I didnt have to enter passwords etc again like i was expecting to do after a PRAM-Reset.
Any ideas what might be broken?
Is there a way to reinstall the SMC? I tried to but i got the message "Firmware is already up to date. No update necessary."
