CPU Overload 300%
Hi guys I'm new so I'm sorry if this isn't a perfect description.
Computer: MacBook Pro 13" mid 2013, 2.5 GHz Intel Core i5 (EMC: 2554)
Problem: sluggish performance fans constantly on full along with kernel task taking up 300% CPU
Having already carried out an SMC and PRAM reset nothing worked, then also reinstalled OS again no success.
Carried out an AHT and got error message:
4SNS/1/C0000008 : TAOP -- 124
After some research I realised that it was the ambient temperature sensor which was malfunctioning (TAOP)
To test this I installed Istat and Temperature gauge pro but got no abnormal sensor readings (or at least it don't thin they are)
( CPU 1 core : 32 degrees Celsius)
(CPU 2 core : 32 degrees Celsius)
(CPU core peci : 32 degrees Celsius)
(GPU 1 Diode : 36 degrees Celsius)
(Palmrest proximity : 25 degrees Celsius)
(HHD : 32 degrees Celsius)
This confused me is the TAOP sensor not monitored? Is there anyway to disable it?
Is the sensor on the logic board or on another component that I could switch out?
Is my board dead as a dodo?
(Oh and my MacBook Pro is no longer under warranty.)
