Hi Pear, thanks for...

Hi Pear, thanks for asking. I've written a list of significant and urgent problems that I have had since upgrading to high sierra 10.13. I have cut and paste them and there are quite a few. so thanks for taking the time to read them. Because my fan was running in overdrive on my macbook pro despite very minimal usage (such as watching a purchased and downloaded movie a movie playing). I called tech support. They had me download and install high sierra 10.13. Doing so has generally fixed the problem, except when running chrome, the same fan overdrive occurs.

Technician's Assistant: What Operating System (OS) are you running on your MacBook Pro?

High sierra 10.13

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your MacBook Pro? What have you tried so far?

Since as soon as I upgraded

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mac Expert to know before I connect you?

I have tried uninstall/reinstall of programs

There has been something wrong with our connection. I would just like to know. Will the overall price be a minimum of what I have already committed to paying, plus the extra 55 dollars? And if I'm not 100% satisfied with your advice, I can cancel my subscription and rightfully ask for my money back? That is, assuming your advice is unsatisfactory.

If so, I will have to think about this offer

Hello Alon,

Are your Fans always this hard? Or only when you have multiple programs open?

Kind regards,

Jeffrey

The fans have are working much better and quieter, except when streaming video content like a doco from a provider like curiosity.com
Mac Support Specialist: Jeffrey B,
 replied 6 months ago

Understood.

When you open the activity monitor when playing a video.

Do you see which software is using your cpu the most?

Kind regards,

Jeffrey

No, but generally I can have multiple programs open without any overdrive issues. It's just some specific video streaming websites.
I am actually far more interested in rectifying the issues with my music writing programs, as well as connecting to my screen monitor using the hdmi cord. The screen recognises the computer but not vice versa

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
