The fans were always running at 85 to 100% fan speed while gaming. It's so annoying. Negative air pressure: More fans are blowing air out of the case than drawing air in, causing a slight vacuum effect. MacBook Air computers have vents along the back near the clutch. Registry Editor will be opened. Unlike desktop fans, which have more room to breathe, laptop fans are smaller. Assuming all the fans are the same size and speed, then you have one of three possible options for the air pressure inside the case: Positive air pressure: More fans are drawing air into the case than blowing air out of the case. The computer works well for a couple of days. Two days ago I went to start my mom's computer as … The fan switch provides power or ground to the resistor and there would be a high speed blower relay to bypass the resistor. But in your case the fan switch is part of the controller.

Somehow the temperature sensing must be in fan air and it senses high temp and shuts down computer with fans on high. Both were replaced, did the work ourselves and it did not fix the problem. Most computers have a temperature sensor and a variable-speed fan. I can see the fan running while sleeping if the computer is running some background action like a disk defrag, but its not.
