comment Macbook Pro runs very hot when using VirtualBox
Thanks for the explanation! Tried out the fan control yesterday and it seems to do the trick. Ran at a cool (but slightly louder) 48 C. Thanks!

That's a good suggestion. Thank you. A quick question I would have is - shouldn't OSX already handle spinning up and down the fans as necessary?

@Ramhound - I updated my question. I wasn't clear. The laptop ONLY gets hot running Windows 7 in a VM. No other time.

@Ramhound The machine is brand new. Like...two days old brand new. And, I will be traveling with this machine a lot - can't have much (anything external). And, won't open it up so I don't void the warranty.

I am running the memory tests now, but I am not seeing anything after three passes.

I dont think its the CPU. Problems only seem to happen when I actually access the hard drive. Unfortunately, I am limited to the tools I can use as I dont have them with me.

comment Slow Hard Drive…But No Apparent Problems
@David - Sorry about that...trying to do this on a phone. The CPU is a dual core AMD. The computer just got slow one day according to my brother. However, it seems to be a hard drive problem. The computer works great if I do not acces the hard drive (boot off a CD for example). I checked the SMART and everything came across good there as well. I am really stumped.
