I have a 17" 2.4 GHZ Intel Core 2 Duo iMac running 2 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM and version 10.5.5
It has worked like a charm for 14 months. Now all of a sudden the fan is super loud and non-stop the second I hit the power button. This just happened in the past 2 days. The fan turns on before the system even boots up. I have no applications running at all. So it seems to be a hardware issue. Any suggestions?
