Is your laptop suffering from overheating issues? The answer could be to fight fire with fire. One programmer tried fixing his MacBook Pro's cooling issues by baking it, and the results weren't quite what he expected.

Before you dash to the kitchen with your laptop, you need to hear this story out. The programmer, Sterling Hirsh, who works on the tech site iFixit had a MacBook Pro that was constantly overheating.

His MacBook was one of the models that was notorious for overheating, and his constant use of it for programming, games and music didn't help. But what good is a laptop if you can't use it?

Hirsh said that he tried the simple fixes first: getting a laptop fan, using canned air to clear out the inside, and installing a program that allows the fans to run at top speed. Sadly, this was all to no avail, and the MacBook finally died.
