Was it dust? Could be the power in socket/plug.

Small puff of smoke coming through the top right of the laptop


The fan usually wont fail in that manner, If it still works normally, you can go to www.almico.com and download a program called speed fan. It is free and it will tell you the temp of everything in that computer.

My car smoke in the morning when I spark it. When I drive for a few miles it stops


possibly just condensation (steam) white-clear worse in colder enviroments
possible valve stem seals worn or gone hard
if its manual it may give small puff of (blue-grey) smoke out of exhaust in between gear changes at higher revs or on deceleration from hard rev while stationary it will also smell like burning oil

If I try to drag something into the dock it disappears...


Drag the file you are trying to put into the dock to the right of the silver line at the right of the dock. The file you want to delete, let it disappear in the 'puff of smoke' and then go into Macintosh HD and find the file and drag it over the trash icon. I hope it works!


Thanks, Logan
