the fan on my macbook doesn't run at all and seems to overheat easily
Run the Apple Hardware Test to see if it spots any hardware issues with your fan. Thats one of the tests it runs. When prompted, choose the extended test, which may take over an hour to run.
Thank YOU!!! That's the 1st time I've heard the fan in months but now that the test is over, I don't hear it anymore!
Assuming no sensor or other hardware issues were identified by the hardware test, have you reset your SMC?
No hardware issues and I just reset my SMC......I'm stumped!!!!
Download, install and run iStat Pro to check temperature and fan speeds.
